Turkish company stops the electricity supply to Lebanon


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.
