COLOMBO (News 1st): Disruptions to the power supply are likely on Friday (Jan. 7) in various parts of the country, the Ceylon Electricity Board said.

The supply of electricity to multiple areas including Nugegoda and Maharagama was disrupted on Thursday night (6) following an issue in a generator at the Kelanitissa Power Plant.

135 megawatts of power was lost due to the issue at the Kelanitissa Power Plant, while another 76 megawatts of power was lost due to an issue in a generator at the Kukule-Ganga Power Plant, R. M. Ranatunga, the General Manager of the Ceylon Electricity Board told News 1st.

According to the CEB, the generator at the Kukule-Ganga Power Plant has been restored, but the generator at the Kelanitissa Power Plant is yet to be fully restored.

As a result, power cuts are possible today (7) as well in various areas, at times when the daily demand for electricity is high.
