Prepare for complete darkness

Sources in Der Ammar thermal and Zahrani plants reported through Al-Markazia, that the two sets had been switched off due to diesel outage.

The sources added that there are no ships in the foreseeable future, which bodes that Lebanon will plunge into total darkness.

The Lebanese suffer from power cuts of more than 20 hours a day; In some cities, the power is cut off for 22 hours, and delivered for two hours only, due to the significant decline in production with the absence of power supplies that come from abroad.

In light of the shortage of medicines and fuel, and the electricity crisis in Lebanon, the World Bank considered that the economic crisis that Lebanon is currently going through, is the worst financial crisis the world has witnessed in nearly a century and a half.

Meanwhile, Lebanese government had previously agreed, last April, to establish two new power stations, to overcome the electricity outage crisis, which has become the major problem for the Lebanese recently.

The Minister of Energy, Walid Fayyad, announced that the government agreed to proceed with contracts to establish, finance and operate new power stations, so that the Lebanese would obtain greater amounts of electricity, and assigning the ministry to expedite the tendering, to attract offers to build, transform and operate the stations.
