“With the current growth rate in power, the government is looking
into sustainable alternatives for power generation,” said Rishad
Bathiudeen, Minister of Industry and Commerce.
The 8th Power Sri Lanka 2012 International Expo acts as an optional
pathway that the government seeks with local and international ideas on
power generation, transmission, energy and renewable energy that are on
display. The expo was opened yesterday and will continue on until the
June 16 from 10 am to 6.30pm at the Sri Lanka Exhibition and Convention
Sri Lanka is emerging as a global entity making it crucial for
domestic industries to venture into different avenues which range from
batteries, generators to hydro power. “This will give not only Sri
Lankans in the corporate sector but also individuals an opportunity to
re-look their thoughts on how to move forward in this lucrative sector,”
said Murali Prakesh, CEO and Group Managing Director of Brown and
Company PLC. With over 20 exhibitors including; Abans Electricals PLC,
Gustav Hensel GMBH CO and Shenzhen Jingfuyuan Tech CO LTD various
outlooks can be brought to the attention of Sri Lankans and also give
those participating in the expo, global recognition through the visiting
trade delegates and business people.
“This is one of the events that will lead Sri Lanka into a bright
future and with the emphasis on power at the moment, it is timely to
look at new sources,” said Nihal Rupasinghe, Chairman of the Central
Engineering Consultancy Bureau (CECB).
