Northern Power Station (Sri Lanka)

Petroleum power stations

The Northern Power Station, is a 36 MW fuel-oil burning power station built in Chunnakam, Jaffna District, in Sri Lanka. The power station was built after the Northern Power company won a Ceylon Electricity Board tender to urgently set up a power station in the region in response to the 1990s/2000s power crisis. During its operations, the power plant had faced a number of legal cases due to the alleged contamination of water resources in the region.
