Uninterrupted electricity Supply to Kilinochchi & Mullaitivu


The Government has taken action to ensure continuous electricity supply to Kilinochchi and Mullative Districts under ‘Vavuniya Kilinochchi Transmission Project’.

This project has been already started under ‘Vadakkin Vasantham’ programme with the support of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Two step-down transformers worth of Rs.3000 mn were brought to Kilinochchi CEB project site. These transformers will step down the Vavuniya supply of 132KV into 33KV. Through this project industrial investors in these areas will gain the benefits as they could get the three phase supply for their Industries from this step down process.

This project is expected to be completed by the end of July 2012.

Around one hundred and twenty thousand people and business societies of Kilinochchi District will benefit from this project. Further, another hundred thousand residents of Mullative District will also receive the benefits of this project.
