The accident at the Az-Zara power plant in the Syrian province of Hama led to a general power outage in Syria, the press service of the republic’s energy ministry said.
It is noted that there was a failure in the transformer at the enterprise, because of which Az-Zara first failed, and after it was stopped, other power plants in the country stopped working. The ministry assured that power supply in Syria would be restored within two hours.
