The SRTF delivers electrical equipment, tools and protective clothing for rehabilitation of an electricity grid in Aleppo Governorate

Gaziantep – Sunday, 22 February 2015 – The SRTF procured and delivered safety and protection clothing, equipment and electrical tools to the implementing entity (IE) responsible for rehabilitation and expansion of an electricity grid in a town in the Governorate of Aleppo today. The delivery took place at a “Zero Point” on the Turkish-Syrian borders.

 

The old and low voltage grid was partly damaged by air strikes and became increasing subject to consumption pressures due to the flow of a large number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in need of electric power. The population of the town and neighboring villages covered by the grid has tripled to more than 50,000 people over the last couple of years.

 

The new shipment is the first of a series of supplies comprised in the SRTF “ Rehabilitation and Expansion of the Electricity Grid of a Town in the Aleppo Governorate” project.
