Sri Lanka's Cabinet of Ministers has awarded a 10MW solar project contract to Colombo-based firm Didul, at a cost or LKR12.49/kWh (US$0.079).

The solar plant will be located on land near a substation in Valachchenai, Eastern Sri Lanka, and will be set up on a Build Own and Operate (BOO) basis.

The Cabinet approved the proposal presented by Ranjith Siyambalapitiya, Minister of Power and Renewable Energy to award the contract.

Back in January, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) issued a request for proposal (RfP) for 90 small-scale solar projects of 1MW capacity each under the second stage of the Suryabala Sangramaya Programme – Phase II.
