Libyan engineers race to restore grid and generation in south

Issue 272 - 03 Mar 2014 | 2 minute read

Increased levels of violence in these regions means that they have become no-go zones for most non-Libyans, and according to some sources even local engineers face some danger of kidnapping as they attempt to restore the grid to working order. Work has proceeded urgently because of the severe outages caused by the destruction, and the unrest in the country has also hampered efforts to construct new generation capacity.
