ECONOMYNEXT – The Sri Lankan government had awarded a maintenance contract for its coal power station at Norochcholai to China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) which built the plant, a spokesman said.

The contract is for maintenance of turbine and related accessories in unit 02 of the Lak Vijaya Power Plant on the north-west coast.

The 900MW plant, which has failed several times, was built by China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) on a long term loan from the EXIM Bank of China.

Health Minister Rajitha Senaratna said the Cabinet of ministers this week approved a proposal by Power and Renewable Energy Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya to award the maintenance contract to CMEC.

The agreement, valid until September 2019, costs Rs 263.4 million.
