Thu, Oct 29, 2020, 12:32 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 29, Colombo: On the instructions of the Minister of Power and Energy, power plant officials have taken steps to repair a mechanical fault in a tower turbine at the ‘Pawan Danavi’ wind power plant in Norochcholai, Puttalam.

The wind power plant owned by Lanka Transformers Limited (LTL), an institution affiliated to the Ministry of Power and Energy, adds 10 megawatts of power to the national grid.

The fault occurred in one of the three towers currently in operation at the Pawan Danavi Wind Power Plant consisting of 12 towers of 850 kW each, the officials said.

According to power plant officials, the fault was caused by a leak in the cooling fluid of the gear system of the turbine in the tower.

The fault has already been rectified and the transformer will be reconnected to the national grid within a few days after the repairs are completed, the officials said.

‘Pawan Danavi’ is a 10.2 MW onshore wind farm located near Kalpitiya, in the Puttalam District of Sri Lanka. The wind farm utilizes twelve of Gamesa’s G58-850 kW wind turbines.
