Power Cuts will have to be extended

Mr. Janaka Ratnayake, chairman of the Public Utilities Commission, says that the electricity cut will have to be extended.
He mentioned that it was due to the failure of the third generator of Norochchole power plant.
Meanwhile, Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera says that the CEB has informed that the 3rd unit of the Norochchole power plant has been closed due to a steam leak.

Maintenance work is estimated to take 3-5 days and fuel plants will be used to manage power generation until repairs are completed, he said in a Twitter message.
