Turkey: electricity cuts in some industrial plants due to gas cuts from Iran

Turkey’s energy ministry said Thursday that electricity cuts have hit some industrial plants in the country due to gas cuts from Iran.

A technical failure interrupted the supply of natural gas from Iran to Turkey.

The Turkish authorities have ordered gas-fired power plants to reduce consumption by 40%.

Officials indicated that the authorities had asked natural gas distributors to reduce supplies to 60% for large consumers, except those used for heating.

Officials confirmed that hospitals and schools would be exempted from the decision to reduce supplies.
