ECONOMYNEXT – Adani Global Pte. Ltd. has won a Sri Lankan government contract to supply 300,000 metric tonnes of coal for the Puttalam coal power plant on the north west coast, the state information office said.
The spot tender to supply coal at 81.87 US dollars a tonne was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers this week on a proposal by Power, Energy and Business Development Minister Ravi Karunanayake, a statement said.
