The Power and Energy Ministry states that the machine fault of the turbine at the Lak Vijay Coal power plant in Norochcholai has been repaired but adding power to the national grid would delay further.

The second turbine of the power plant broke down at 11 am yesterday causing power interruptions in several areas in the island including Colombo. 

Hiccups in the supply occurred in Colombo today as well.

The national grid lost 270 MW due to the failure of the Norochcholai Coal Power plant.
