Mitsubishi Corporation, J-Power Systems Corporation, and Ceylex Engineering (Pvt.) Ltd. has been awarded the contract to run overhead electricity transmission cables between the cities of Habarana and Veyangoda in Sri Lanka. The cables will be supplied by Mitsubishi Corporation and J-Power Systems Corporation while Ceylex will be in charge of supply for the remaining equipment as well as installation and construction works. The project is expected to reach completion around October 2019 at a cost of some ¥6 billion and is being financed through a yen loan secured by Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB). Energy efficiency in Sri Lanka is currently a matter of concern given the electricity network’s aging infrastructure and the rates of electricity loss during transmission, extremely high when compared with other countries in Asia,. The power lines will be installed in an important corridor in the island’s power grid, running form the city of Habarana in north central Sri Lanka to Veyangoda on the outskirts of the capital. It is also the first set of low-loss high-capacity cables to be run in Sri Lanka. Developed in Japan, this kind of transmission cables is highly rated, equipped to reduce electricity loss during transmission by about 20-25% per annum, when compared to conventional cables, thereby also contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions. Through this project, Mitsubishi Corporation is hoping to make a contribution to Sri Lanka’s efforts to secure a stable supply of electricity and to the country’s overall economic development. The move is also consistent with Japanese government initiatives aimed at increasing the export of high-quality infrastructure.
