Following Deir Ammar footsteps, Al-Zahrani plant turns off its engines

After the Deir Ammar plant turn off, due to the lack of diesel, Al-Zahrani plant will turn off its engines this afternoon, provided that it operates the Zouk plant, but the production capacity, which is currently 350megawatts MW, will drop to less than 200 MW.
It is noteworthy that less than 200 MW is not enough to connect the electrical network together, and therefore there is a risk of entering a comprehensive public outage.
