The Turkish company, Karpowership, which supplies Lebanon with electricity from two floating stations, said it had stopped supplies due to payment arrears and after a legal threat to its two stations in Lebanon, which is facing a deep economic crisis.

Lebanon gets 370 megawatts of electricity from the company, which is equivalent to a quarter of the country’s current supply.

The company informed the Lebanese government last week that it would have to take this step if there were no moves to reach a settlement.

The company said in a statement that it had shut down the power supply on Friday.

A source familiar with the situation said that the measure was taken around 8:00 a.m. (05:00 GMT) with the two floating stations running out of fuel.
