Massive power cut disrupts port operations
March 31, 2015, Turkey, all ports
Port operations in Turkey are facing disruption as a result of a massive power cut that has hit dozens of provinces across the country today (Tuesday 31 March).

 

Although the Turkish Straits and ports are not closed, husbandry operations (crew changes, spares, etc.) are being negatively affected.

 

The cuts affected power stations and public transport, including Istanbul’s tram and metro systems. A crisis centre has been set up at the energy ministry.

 

By early afternoon the Turkish Electricity Transmission company said only 15% of Istanbul and Ankara had power.
