Chinese Company Says It Has No Plans To Take Over Norochcholai Plant

China Machinery and Engineering Company(CMEC), the company which constructed the Norochcholai coal power plant, asserted that it did not hold any discussion with the Ceylon Electricity Board regarding a transfer of the power plant or a handover of the operations of the power plant to CMEC.

 

“CMEC has never and will not request to take over the power plant or the operations of the power plant nor has CEB ever requested to transfer the power plant or the operations of the power plant to CMEC. CMEC strongly believes that the Puttalam Coal Power Plant in Norochcholai is the most significant property that belongs to the CEB and holds the most valuable assets of the nation of Sri Lanka, benefiting every citizen of the country,” Wang Ludong, Site Manager of Puttalam Coal Power Project for CMEC said in a statement today (03).

“CMEC sincerely believes that the Puttalam Coal Power Plant in Norochcholai is the most important energy supply in the country and hence it is of significant indispensability to the improvement of Sri Lankan people’s living standards and the development of the economy of Sri Lanka,” he also said.

The Site Manager also added that the CMEC would dedicate its service and distribute all its efforts along with long-term technical support to CEB, not only for the stable operation of the Puttalam Coal Power Plant in Norochcholai, but also for the promotion of the friendly and cooperative relations between China and Sri Lanka.
