A delegation from the American-Turkish PEG company arrived in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a Monday to hold talks with competent government bodies regarding establishing more power generation projects in the country. The visit is a response to an invitation extended by the Ministry of Electricity, which plans to sign agreements with the PEG company on building more power projects, especially in the capital, Sana'a, which was badly affected by repeated attacks on its supply lines, leaving thousands of its household deprived of such vital and basic service.
The delegation is set to meet up with top government officials and competent bodies in the country to implement some projects that would revamp and improve electricity sector, which has been repeatedly attacked by unidentified attackers, making people live in total blackness.
"The delegation would hold talks with various government officials to discuss some plans and approaches pertaining building power generating stations," said the general manager of the US-Turkish PEG company.
For his part, Hasham Mohammed al-Thawr, the regional representative of the PEG company in Yemen, has expressed his hope that the delegation's visit achieve the expected positive results and that the Ministry of Electricity signs a memo of understanding with PEG company.
Al-Thawr has indicated the company's keenness and willingness to build power supply stations that work by diesel, petrol and light gas.
He pointed out that the PEG would present special offers that would help hasten the implementation of power projects in a way that would reduce the losses of the national economy and the sufferings of the Yemeni people of the frequent long power cuts.
On Sunday, once again the power supply lines were badly hit as unidentified assailants attacked it with a barrage of projectiles, halting the Marib Gas Station and triggering a new round of long blackouts.
Sana'a residents heaved a sigh of relief that power service war restored after nearly a year of frequent, long outages that accompanied the one-year-long political deadlock. But, unfortunately, their happiness was short-lived owning to a reckless attack on supply lines in Marib province.
