BEIRUT: The private generators at Riyad El Solh Central Telecommunications shut down on July 28th, 2020, for the first time since 2005.

The central, located in the main building of the Ministry of Telecommunication, is responsible for providing all of the lines in the downtown area of Lebanon including all ministerial offices.

Chairman and General Director of Ogero Telecommunications, Imad Kreidieh, released a statement on Twitter mentioning that “due to the frequently occurring electricity cuts, the pressure on the private generators of the center has caused the stopping of the central at 3 a.m. on July 29”.

Kreidieh reassured in his tweet that the Ogero team will be working hard on fixing the problems in the generators of the Riyad El Solh Telecommunication Central.

A source from Ogero disclosed to An-Nahar that the power outbreak has been since 3 p.m July, 28th is linked to the faults in the generators which were caused by the power outbreaks and not due to the power outbreaks themselves.

Earlier this week, the head of the Telecommunication and Media Committee, MP Hussein Al-Hajj Hassan, announced that Ogero has filed in their report with their annual numbers differing from previous reports of the same year.

He stated that Kreidieh has sent "incorrect or incomplete numbers which have been placed wrongly and have been manipulated within the study."
