COLOMBO (News 1st): The Ministry of Energy has agreed to supply 6000 metric tonnes of Diesel for power generation on Thursday (Mar. 31), the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB).

Only the Kelanithissa Combined Cycle Power Station is currently active amidst the shortage of Diesel, according to the CEB.

All other Thermal Power Plants that run on Diesel and Furnace Oil are currently inactive, Additional General Manager Andrew Nawamani, the CEP Spokesperson told News 1st.
