Minister of Power and Renewable Energy Ranjith Siyambalapitiya noted that power interruptions may occur due to a malfunction at the Norochcholai coal power plant.

The Minister and Deputy Minister Ajith P. Perera engaged in an inspection tour at Norochcholai Lakvijaya power plant this morning, together with a group of reporters.

All three power units of the plant ceased operations last afternoon after a defect in the transmission line between Kotmale to Anuradhapura.
