Navy-built RO plant vested in the ownership of community
Sri Lanka Navy has been playing a key role in support of the national effort of eliminating kidney disease from the country. As another initiative of this timely social responsibility project, the 787th Reverse Osmosis (RO) plant set up by the Navy at Hulannuge in Ampara was declared open for community use on 16th December 2020.
The installation of this RO unit was initiated by the Ministry of Health at Hulannuge in Ampara and the technological know-how and manpower needed for the set up was enabled by the Sri Lanka Navy. Accordingly, the new facility will henceforth fulfill the safe drinking water requirement of the students of Hulannuge Vidyalaya and residents of the area.
The opening of this RO plant was marked by Commander Southeastern Naval Command, Rear Admiral Jayantha Gamage and Assistant Divisional Secretary of Lahugala. The occasion was also attended by officers and sailors of Sri Lanka Naval Ship Mahanaga, residents and students of Hulannuge Vidyalaya.
