Libyan Iron and Steel Company (LISC) indicated earlier today that all of its factories stopped working in support of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL).

Speaking to the Libyan News Agency (LANA), the Director of the Media Bureau in (LISC) Mohammed Al-Khammareya said that the Salvation Government asked them to stop the work in the company’s factories due to the growing crisis of electrical power, which went into upsetting outage hours over the last days.

“The cessation of the LISC’s factories work will save the GECOL almost 520 megawatts in total, which would increase the generating capabilities of the GECOL and decrease the outage hours.” Said Director Al-Khammareya.

Meanwhile, Tripoli is suffering from long-period power outages that reached 10 hours a day as the heatwave coupled with humidity continue to soar high.
