Sri Lanka: Japanese technicians have conducted tests on the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) transformers which exploded last week, and have sent samples to Japan for further tests, according to Colombo Gazette.

Sri Lanka’s Power and Energy Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said that the Japanese technicians are from the company which supplied the transformers to the CEB, and the Japanese company is expected to submit a report on what caused the transformers to explode in a few days.

Technicians from the German company which manufactured transformers’ tap changers will also conduct tests.

The faulty transformers have now been replaced and operations are back to normal.
