The Ceylon Electricity Board said Power cuts will continue for another week until the Lakvijaya power plant in Norocholai, Puttalam is fully commissioned.

It said that test runs are still being carried out at the coal power plant and that although the operations were commenced at the malfunctioned Norocholai plant yesterday, the generated power has not been added to the National Power Grid.

The CEB said the inspections have not been completed yet therefore power cuts will continue in parts of the island as per previous schedule.

CEB Deputy Chairmen speaking to our news team explained the current situation.
