Turkey's Karpowership will resume electricity supply to Lebanon from its two power ships from Tuesday in a decision it said was a goodwill gesture against a backdrop of talks over payment arrears and a legal threat to its vessels.

The company told the government in May that it would have to shut down unless there were moves towards settling the issues. Karpowership used to supply 370 megawatts (MW), or about a quarter of Lebanon's supply.

ah....you just can't catch a break in this cursed land

More power blackouts to blight Lebanon in the coming days: EDL

More power blackouts to blight Lebanon in the coming days: EDL​




BEIRUT: Lebanon is set to suffer more electricity blackouts in the coming days as the Deir Ammar and al-Zahrani power plants will close due to insufficient fuel supplies, Electricite du Liban said Friday.

A ship loaded with fuel has been docked at the Deir Ammar plant since June 28, but the group is awaiting payment from the Central Bank and as such has been unable to offload the cargo. As a result, stockpiles have become dangerously low, forcing EDL to switch off the two plants sequentially to avoid completely exhausting supplies and damaging machinery.

“It will reduce the total production capacity by about 150 megawatts and lead to a prolonged period of around four days, until the payment credit issue is clarified,” the group said in a statement, adding that the situation was "beyond the control of EDL."

The state run electricity company also said that once the payment credit is opened, the cargo can be offloaded and electricity supplies will be restored to previous levels. The two plants are estimated to feed around 10 percent of the country’s power production.

The decision will be met with despair by residents, who have already been crippled by severely reduced power in recent weeks.The electricity shortage has caused further concern as the weather has heated up with households unable to use air conditioning machines or fans, while the lack of electricity has also hampered water pumps. In some regions of the country, residents have been living without power for up to 20 hours a day. In addition, those usually able to fall back on private generators that make up for the state shortfall have also been hit from a scarcity of diesel.

The shortages have arisen from the Central Bank’s failure to pay invoices on time, as the Bank struggles to rustle up enough US dollars to cover the caretaker government’s subsidy scheme on essential goods. The Bank’s foreign currency reserves have diminished to around $14 billion and consequently can no longer afford to pay importers for essential goods.

Over the last month, the caretaker government has taken bigger steps to lift subsides which caused prices to jump at the same time as an acute shortage of fuel, food and medicines has caused misery to the daily lives of the population.

i hope that ISIS defeat is felt and understood by people in tripoli akkar etc... and that their anger manifests as a lebanese one and not something else. i hope that hariri-berri relationship can keep a lid on this

i make USD and i visibly notice everyone getting poorer around me. if shia are getting USD this means they notice everyone else getting poorer relative to them and this might embolden them to do things that might cause a conflict.

there are many iraqis and syrians in beirut. i bet there is 2 of them for every 1 of us. they are even starting to rob houses and their heads are now held high when they walk past us, they aren't afraid of us anymore. in the case of massive rioting and general strikes who knows what these people, who we have no idea who they are and why they are here, will do.

a lot can go wrong
