Power cut inevitable despite PUCSL’s claim: Electrical Engineers’ Association

The recommendations by the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) for an uninterrupted power supply are not practical at all, said the Electrical Engineers’ Association. A number of problems may occur, should the PUCSL recommendations be implemented, claimed Union President Anil Ranjith.

In the wake of the fuel shortage several power plants have stopped generating power and it may take another two weeks to collect the required volumes of fuel to reactivate the plants, he noted.

Meanwhile, the water levels in the reservoirs acquired for electricity generation are rapidly declining, leading to a potential drop of hydropower generation capacity in the future.

In the problematic backdrop, maintenance of an uninterrupted power supply would be difficult, the Electrical Engineers’ Association emphasised.
