A nuclear power plant for Sri Lanka

Oct 17, 2010 11:53:48 AM - itnnews.lk

Plans are being drawn to establish a nuclear power plant to meet the growing demand for power in the country.

Power and Energy Ministry sources said that the government had already commenced a pre-feasibility study.

Sri Lanka depends on hydro power with several coal power plants yet to be completed. Reports say that these power plants are not sufficient to meet the country’s electricity need.
