BEIRUT: Lebanon’s two main power plants were forced to shut down after running out of fuel, the state electricity company said Saturday, leaving the small country with no government-produced power.
The country is battling one of the planet’s worst economic crises since the 1850s, and has in recent months struggled to import enough fuel oil for its power plants. Erratic power supplies have put hospitals and essential services in crisis mode.
The Lebanese increasingly depend on private operators that also struggle to secure supplies. The shortage of diesel and fuel, along with an antiquated infrastructure, has worsened power cuts. Blackouts that used to last for three to six hours could now leave areas with no more than two hours of state power a day. “The power network completely stopped working, and it is unlikely that it will work until next Monday, or for several days,” an official said.
