Fri, Jan 14, 2022, 09:20 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 14, Colombo: Engineer in charge of the Victoria Reservoir Wasantha Ehelapitiya says the Victoria Hydro Power Plant with all three of its turbines operating generates 4.5-5.5 gigawatt hours of electricity.

He said the power generation when the water level of the reservoir is at its maximum capacity is being done at this time but with the prevailing dry weather conditions, it will not be possible to generate electricity in this manner for a long time.

He said that due to the current crisis in the country in thermal power, the Victoria Power Plant is generating hydro power at maximum capacity to provide uninterrupted power supply to the public.
