Sri Lanka sees major power failure

Jan 21, 2008 (LBO) -- Power supply to most parts of Sri Lanka failed as a transformer in a transmission line just outside the capital burst in the early hours of Monday, officials at the state power utility said. A current transformer in the Kotugoda grid substation had burst tripping off the adjacent Biyagama substation which received power from the generation system in the Mahaweli river system setting off a chain reaction, a Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) official said.

However, some generators in the Mahaweli complex and systems in areas like Badulla remained energized, and engineers were quickly restoring power to the country.
