Hydropower in Sri Lanka

With the world as one now moving away from unfriendly conventional fuels and towards cleaner energy sources, hydropower in Sri Lanka and its important role in being one of the largest sources of renewable energy in Sri Lanka, has come in to play. Hydro power involves capturing the kinetic energy of flowing water and turning it into electricity. The global demand for energy is on a steep rise, and so is the demand for hydropower in Sri Lanka. Hayleys Aventura is setting out to bridge the gap in Sri Lanka’s power supply shortfall by making use of a renewable source that the country has been abundantly blessed with: water.

By setting up numerous hydro power plants around the island, the Hayleys Aventura Renewable Energy Sector aims to supply the national grid through clean, renewable energy sources, and become the leading name among hydro power companies in Sri Lanka.

Following are Hydro Power Plants in Sri Lanka established by Hayleys Aventura:

  • Radella Hydro Power Plant
  • Gomala Oya Hydro Power Plant
  • Somerset Hydro Power Plant
  • Palmerston Hydro Power Plant
  • Lower Neluwa

Hayleys Aventura also actively engages in providing complete solutions and consultancy & project management services to Hydro Power developers.
