The General Electricity Company announced the exposure of the North Sabha power station to sabotage and theft by unknown persons.

The Director of the Information Department of the General Electricity Company, Mohammed Al-Takouri, said in a press statement on Tuesday that an unknown group had stolen a quantity of copper and some components of the station, including two MVA125 transformers.

Al-Takouri noted that the station is considered the only refuge in terms of the distribution in the city of Sabha.
