July 11, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Lakvijaya Coal Power Plant in Norochcholai has halted power generation since July 09 for maintenance and other repair work, Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) said.

The closure of the plant this time is for an essential test and maintenance in the Unit- 2 of the power house, CEB said.

Additional Director General of CEB M.C Vikramasekara said that the Unit-2 generators have to be shut down due to a technical issue and the power plant will not generate electricity for a period of three weeks.

The 600 MW Chinese built coal power plant is known for its incessant breakdowns.

The second 300 MW unit of the Lakvijaya Power Station commenced its operations in April 2014 and the Unit 3 will be operational in September 2014.
