Another wind-power plant in Puttalam


The Board of Investment has granted approval for an Indian investor to invest 18.55 million US dollars to build a 10 mega watt wind power plant in Uppudaluwa, in Puttalam.

The project will be carried out by Powergen Lanka and it is expected to commence operations by June 2011.

The project will use seven 1.7 MW wind turbines for power generation. It is expected that 75 percent of the power generation from wind turbines within a year is during April to October, when heavy wind currents exist in the project area.

This project is a part of Sri Lanka’s effort to harness alternate energy to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
