Power transmission lines to be upgraded

The Power and Energy Ministry in a bid to minimize electricity wastage has decided to upgrade the main transmission lines in the country with ADB financial assistance

Ministry sources said the transmission lines have not been upgraded for over five decades.

Lighting up
* ADB help
* Project costs Rs 16,000 m
* Wastage minimised

The Ceylon Electricity Board will utilize the latest technology to modernize these transmission lines and several substations will also be developed under this program which is estimated to cost Rs. 16,000 million, sources said.

The public will receive a streamlined power supply with the completion of this project. Meanwhile, a Power and Energy Ministry release said the Asian Development Bank will upgrade the six decade old electricity transmission network in the island.

Under this project, sub-stations in the North and East will be developed while Habarana and Valachchenai sub station lines will be newly constructed.

This new scheme once completed will minimise the wastage of power experienced between old power transmission lines and sub-stations and ensure an efficient service to consumers at a bearable and competitive rate.
