Broadlands hydro power project to be constructed

Minister of Power and Energy, Pavithra Wanniarachchi, issued a statement on the occasion of the construction of the Broadlands hydro power project.

"The Broadlands hydro power plant will be constructed and the foundation stone will be laid on July 15 at the auspicious hour of 11.01 a.m. After the completion of the project, it will add 35MW to the National Grid. This in keeping with the theme "Electricity for all at all times". The project is an eco- friendly project and is expected to be completed by 2017. Being the first woman to undertake the portfolio of Power and energy, I consider it my privilege to be able to engage in this project and it is a dream come true.

My belief is that we are now reaching an era where every household in the country will be provided with electricity and will be able to light up their homes.

It is my view that we should overcome all obstacles and provide the much-needed electricity supply for the benefit of the whole country.

As envisioned in the Mahinda Chinthana that every household should have electricity. The Broadlands project is in the right direction. It is expected to that Norochcholai coal power plant and the Uma Oya Moragolla Power plant will also be put into operation. We should try hard to achieve this target. The implementation of the Broadlands hydro power project will be a dream come true. The Government is attempting to fulfil the wishes of all the people who elected this Government into power irrespective of caste, creed or religion and lighting up every household is one that is in the right direction."
