A 24MW thermal power plant in Chunnakam will now help provide uninterrupted power supply to the Jaffna peninsula.
Sri Lanka’s Jaffna Peninsula was cut off from the national gird for decades owing to the three decade old war, which came to an end in 2009.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa was the chief guest of the opening ceremony held to open the Thermal power.
The plant, which is named as “Uthuru Janani’ has been set up by Lakdanavi, a subsidiary of the state owned Ceylon Electricity Board.
‘Uthuru Janani’ has been set up with an investment of Rs. 4 billion.
