SLEN Case study
SLEN Case Study of the month - Lakvijaya Coal Power Station, Norochcholai.

The objective of the SLEN featured article is to explore technical aspects of selected engineering sites in Sri Lanka. In the process we try to investigate engineering features of those sites which are not discussed in main stream media. Our intention is to create academic conversations on those sites. We do not have any intention to fuel politically motivated, technically baseless mass conversations created in the society by the so called "mass media". We are glad to invite you to join with us to create academic base conversations on engineering localities which will decide the future of our country, Sri Lanka.

In our continued effort to promote academic discussions through informed articles on the subject of Power and Energy, the Publications Team of the IESL embarked on yet another power generation facility of the CEB and case study of infrastructure and processes. The feature article in this issue of the Digital SLEN explores the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant.

The ruins of the ancient earth embankment, sluices, spill in the midst of Wilpattu national park would certainly bring the same feeling to anyone who visits there.

One year in office as Editor of SLEN

I would like to thank all readers who sent in their suggestions and critical comments to improve the quality of the SLEN. IESL President, Eng. Tilak De Silva was always behind me to encourage the changes I proposed and his guidance was invaluable. Digital SLEN was a fruit of the efforts put by the ICT chairman, Eng. Arjuna Manamperi with the continuous back up of the President/IESL and I sincerely hope that it will blossom into a very popular IESL publication with a giant subscriber network.
