* Cooling system of Sri Lanka's coal power plant damaged due to sea water
Sat, Dec 28, 2013, 10:26 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka's power authority, Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) says the cooling system of the Norochcholai coal power plant has been damaged due to sea water.

A senior official of the CEB has admitted in an interview with the Sunday Divaina newspaper that there is a leak in the cooling system. He said that measures are underway to repair the damage.

The power plant is nonfunctional for the last two weeks and the engineers of the Chinese company that built the coal power plant have arrived in the country to repair the plant.

However, the CEB has not yet announced when the power plant will re-start generation.

CEB trade union sources say that there is a dispute between the electrical engineers and the mechanical engineers of the CEB and it has caused maintenance problems.
