With the aim of establishing an efficient management structure within the CEB, Minister of Power & Energy Patali Champika Ranawaka on several instances, had introduced various programs which are currently being implemented successfully.
Further streamlining the functions of the CEB, the “Vidulak Paaya” building complex was initiated, which will house the CEB headquarters and several other zonal centers located around Colombo as well as project and operations offices in one location. Construction on this building complex, to be constructed on a two acre plot of land on Dabare Mawatha in Narahenpita, will commence in January 2012. “Vidulak Paaya” will consist of two, ten storied buildings of 236,000 Sq. Ft. at an estimated cost of Rs. 1600 Million, to be borne entirely by the Ceylon Electricity Board.
The CEB further pointed out that by constructing this building complex a substantial sum of money currently spent on rent can be saved, while it will also assist the smooth functioning of administrative functions of the CEB.
