Wed, Jan 8, 2014, 09:32 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's power monopoly, Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) said the country's only coal power plant in Norochcholai will be reactivated today after its latest break down.

The China-built Lakvijaya Power Station broke down on January 5th for the 25th time since its commissioning in March 2010.

Deputy General Manager of the Electricity Generating Division M.C. Wickrama told the National Radio that the repairs are nearing completion.

According to the official, a water leak occurred in a small tube in one of the boilers was the reason for the recent shut-off.

He said they had to wait for the temperature of the boiler to drop in order to carry out the repairs.

The malfunction occurred two days after the power station was re-started following a lapse of over two weeks.
