Dec 06, Colombo: Considering the importance of introducing Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as a source of energy to Sri Lanka, the Government has held discussions with Government of China to jointly establish a 400 megawatt natural gas power plant in Hambantota on G2G basis.

The project will be implemented with the prime objective of providing electricity to the industrial zone proposed to be constructed at Hambantota and to overcome the power scarcity that may occur in the future.

The project to establish the power plant will be implemented under the partnership of Ceylon Electricity Board and China Machinery Engineering Corporation which is nominated by the Government of China.

The proposal put forward by the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in his capacity as the Minister of National Policies and Economic Development to establish the natural gas power plant and a natural gas unloading terminal received the approval from the cabinet of ministers.
