Lights out after October? – Power Cuts likely to be extended
COLOMBO (News 1st) –  Sri Lanka is likely to once again face an electricity crisis due to issues surrounding the procurement of coal to power the Norochcholai Power Plant.The Ceylon Electricity Board Engineer's Union warned that daily power cuts are likely to be extended to ten hours a day, if coal is not received by the 25th of October 2022.The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka also approved the Ceylon Electricity Boards' (CEB) request for power cuts of 2 hours & 20 minutes from 23rd to 25th September.Electricity Supply: 30 percent of the country's electricity supply depends on the Norochcholai coal-fired power plant despite one generator being out of order.More than 40 percent of the electricity demand is met from this plant when all three generators are in operation.Currently, the stock of coal in the plant is sufficient only till October 25th, 2022.After October 25th, sufficient coal stocks should be provided for power generation at the Norochcholai coal-fired power plant.What happened to the supply of coal?Recently, bids were invited to contract a long-term supplier of Coal for Sri Lanka. Several companies submitted bids during the formal tender process and another company submitted bids outside the tender process.After opening and evaluating the bids submitted outside the tender process, the proposals submitted in the formal tender process have been evaluated.Ultimately, it was decided to award the long-term supply to the company that submitted bids via the proper tender process.But the company that submitted bids outside the tender process had again submitted a bid at a lower price.The Minister of Power and Energy recently revealed in Parliament that the said bidder also influenced the company that offered

Chain-smoking Queen Margrethe II who tested positive for Covid after Elizabeth's funeral
Her Majesty's funeral earlier this week.But the monarch, 82, is better known for her laid-back lifestyle that reportedly includes scoffing hot dogs and shopping at Lidl - not the usual behaviour you'd expect from royalty.One of her most famous attributes is her love of smoking - according to some reports she has even been known to light up as many as 60 a day.READ MORE: Royal tests positive for Covid days after attending Queen's funeralSeveral years ago the royal was snapped leaving a Lidl supermarket, sipping on a carton of apple juice and smoking, all the while clutching a hot dog.A tweet at the time read: "The Danish Queen: The only queen in the world who walks straight out of Lidl drinking an applejuice, eating a sausage while smoking at the same time. Yep, we love our queen Margrethe."The beloved Queen also had a bizarre passion for archaeology and speaks a whopping five languages - English, French, German, Danish and Swedish.Born in 1940, Margrethe Alexandrine Þórhildur Ingrid is the great-great granddaughter of Queen Victoria - making her Queen Elizabeth II's third cousin.The two reportedly shared a tight bond for decades, both loving dogs and calling each other by the adorable nicknames "Daisy" and "Lilibet".Margrethe came to the throne in 1972 and her ascension was historic, as previously only men had been allowed to rule.As a princess she was extremely popular and married French diplomat Henri de Laborde de Monpezat in 1967.
