He said that Unit 3 of the coal power plant has been connected back to the National Grid.

The Minister also said that Units 1 and 3 are now operating at full capacity.

Wijesekera said that the ongoing 3 month long routine overhaul maintenance work on Unit 2 is expected to be completed in mid October.

The breakdown resulted in extended power cuts being enforced by the Ceylon Electricity Board.
