Sri Lanka expects to generate 300 megawatts of electricity to the national grid through LNG power project to be implemented in Kerawalapitiya and will open tenders next month calling for international bids for this energy project on liquefied natural gas,

Spokesman for Sri Lanka Powers and Energy Ministry Sulakshana Jayawardane told Xinhua that they are now working on the tender process and would open tenders calling for bids in April.

Sri Lanka depends on hydro, coal and thermal power in main for its energy requirement. However, the prevailing dry spell has reduced the contribution of hydro power to ten percent of the national grid. Otherwise, it remained at 50 percent when rainfall was abundant.

Sri Lanka operates one coal power plant established with financial cooperation from China. The government has now decided not to go for any coal project in future. Instead, it will opt for green energy sources.
