Powerships to Cease Production if Fuel Oil Not Supplied

The electricity supply provided by two Turkish powerships has been significantly cut down amid concerns that they will cease production as of Monday night if they are not supplied with the needed fuel oil.

If this happens, the Lebanese will be deprived of a total power supply of 400 Megawatts.

LBCI channel reported on Sunday that Fatmagul powership, docked off the Zouk plant, has dropped its production from 200 to 70 megawatts.

Likewise, Orhan Bey powership, which has been anchored facing the Jiyeh power plant since August 2013, will also be generating no more than 70MW starting tomorrow.

Lebanon has hired Turkish operator, Karadeniz Powership, to provide Lebanon with two barges that would jointly provide 20 percent of the country's electricity needs.
