Generator at Norochcholai shut down for maintenance

Generator 03 at the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant has been shut down temporarily today (28).

Chairman of the Ceylon Electricity Board Vijitha Herath has said that the generator was shut down for a planned maintenance operation.

Shutting down of Generator 03 will not cause an issue as electricity can be generated using hydro-power, said Vijitha Herath.

Meanwhile, the Ceylon Electricity Board also urged consumers to use the CEB self-care facilities to file any complaint given the limited number of agents available at CEB call centers due to the present COVID-19 situation.
