Lakwijaya breaks down again
Posted in Local News
The Lakwijaya Power Plant at Norochcholai had automatically shut down today due to the tripping of a transmission line from Norochcholai to Veyangoda. The shutdown deprived the national grid of 300MV, the Ministry of Power and Energy said.
Ceylon Electricity Board Chairman Wimaladharma Abeywickrema said they would take all relevant measures to ensure the plant was back to normal soon.

I think this required more attention. Hope attached engineers are really capable to handle such situation. If not better get it done by international body. Else the amount of money wasting would be more than what could identify.
If sabotage is ruled out,the Minster should do well to keep himself ‘awake’ as not to create a national disaster in the near future.
