Entura appointed to support wind development in Sri Lanka

3 November 2016

Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura has been appointed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to support Ceylon Electricity Board’s (CEB) wind development activities in Sri Lanka’s Mannar district.

Located in the north-western part of Sri Lanka, the wind resource-rich Mannar district comprises mainland Mannar and the 130 km2 Mannar Island. The area is considered one of the best wind sites in Sri Lanka and an initial assessment identified a potential of 375 MW of wind power to be developed.

CEB will initially build and operate the 100 MW Mannar Island wind farm and develop the remaining potential of the region in phases.
