* Norochcholai coal power plant will resume power generation today, Sri Lanka power authority says
Thu, Aug 28, 2014, 07:27 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 28, Colombo: The problems at the Lakvijaya Coal Power Plant at Norochcholai have been rectified and the plant will resume power generation today, Sri Lanka's power authority, Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) says.

The China-built Lakvijaya Power Station stopped power generation on Tuesday as the two 300 MW power generators developed technical problems.

The CEB Thursday said measures to rectify the issue in the plant have been taken and the plant will be up and running by afternoon.

The Power generator of Phase 1 has automatically shut down due to a technical problem developed when the engineers were trying to restore functioning of the Phase 2 generator, which broke down 10 days ago.

Phase 3 of the plant is to be commissioned next month during the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping and the generator is currently undergoing tests.

When completed the three phases of the coal power plant will add 300 MW each, for a total of 900 MW to the national grid.
