Chinese company wants wind-powered plant dismantled Featured

The first wind-powered power plant in Sri Lanka is to be dismantled, reports say.

The power plant that generates 35 megawatts is located in the Magampura port in Hambantota.

After the port was given to a Chinese company on a 99 year lease, the CEB has been told to make a payment if the power plant was to continue.

Reports say the power plant will now be relocated at Walsapugala in Hambantota.

Its remains at the port are to be used as an educational exhibition centre.
