Navy renders assistance to repair sluice gate of Nuwara Wewa

Navy divers of SLNS Thammanna in Thaleimannar started the repair work to a sluice gate of Nuwara Wewa in Anuradhapura on 29th May 2016 as one of its main sluice gates went non-operational for few days.

It was found that due to a malfunction in one of the gates and pulleys had caused problems to the control system. Navy divers engaged in a daunting task to dive to a depth of 22 feet down where the sluice gate is located in order to carry out repair work. As a result of the untiring efforts of the Navy the repair was successfully completed today (31).
