Wind Power (Pvt) Ltd has commenced commercial operation on August 9 and is expected to add 10 megawatts to the national grid through its wind turbine generators, the Hayleys subsidiary said. The venture is the latest step towards boosting the power requirements of the nation through renewable and sustainable ‘green’ energy.
Situated in Kalpitiya on Sri Lanka’s western coast, the plant was opened with Chairman and Chief Executive of Hayleys, Mohan Pandithage saying that renewable energy is becoming increasingly significant in Sri Lanka’s growing, energy-reliant economy. “Over the years Hayleys has successfully contributed to sustainable development through hydro and wind power generation. Hayleys currently provides 5.4 megawatts of hydro energy to the national grid and are developing several plants in order to provide 15 megawatts in the future,” he added. Hayleys and consortium partner Windforce Pvt Ltd were instrumental in providing the capital and technology necessary to build the wind power plant.
Power plants currently operated by Hayleys provide 5.5MW of energy to the national grid.
