Site Identification for the Establishment of 30MW Small Scale Biomass Power Plants in Sri Lanka

Nov 19, 2021

To identify potential sites to operate small scale biomass power plants DS divisions where the total biomass availability is greater than or equal to 2MW electricity generation equivalent were considered for the detailed assessment. Biomass potential data was taken from the biomass atlas published by the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority and it is given the total biomass potential in the respective geographical area.

Following this methodology, suitable sites for total 35MW small scale power plants were selected island wide and all the sites have been selected closer to the 33kVA primary distribution line so that the grid interconnection cost can be minimized.
