GECOL Struggles to Keep the Lights On

As temperatures soar in Libya, parts of the country, including large areas of Tripoli and the city of Sebha, are being hit by waves of power cuts, according to Libya Herald.

The report suggests that GECOL's generators in Zawia are running below capacity because the pipeline that supplies them with fuel has been blocked, supposedly by Zintanis protesting Libya’s security and political situation.

The company said that it had suffered material losses of over LD1 billion through theft and vandalism and the refusal of customers to pay their bills. It added that the stealing of valuable copper wiring and damage to local transformers was responsible for some interruptions in the electricity supply.
