Tarhouna power station burnt by overload
Tarhouna power station has been burnt over the overload Tuesday, according to Salim Al-Faqih, the official at General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL)
Al-Faqih said that burning of the network was caused by damaged cables, which could not take any more electricity demand by the city.
He also said that the damage of the power station in the city can lead to more outage hours and more load shedding cuts, calling on all citizens to use electric power carefully and to try to lessen the use of power in the coming days so that the GECOL technicians can repair it.
Libya has been suffering from power outages for the last three years and no radical solutions have been made by any of the three governments in the country yet.
