Electricity cuts in several cities in the eastern region


Posted – 26th July 2021

The General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) announced a full power outage in several cities in the east of Libya and an increase in load shedding hours due to the breakdown of a major turbine at Sarir power plant.

The GECOL confirmed, through its media office, that the breakdown has led to the loss of electricity production for the entire station, following an announcement a few days ago that the second and third turbines of the main station were out of service following major damages incurred.

The company indicated that its engineers are working tirelessly to resolve the problem to return the main turbine to working order.
