Privately-owned power station at Kelanitissa complex temporarily shut down

The privately-owned Sojitz Kelanitissa Power Station in Colombo has been temporarily shut down for maintenance work, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) says.

This diesel-fired combined cycle power station located at Kelanitissa complex generates more than 160 MW of electricity.

The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) stressed that this power plant cannot be allowed to halt operations amidst the ongoing power crisis.
