The residents of Abyan, Yemen, will have a warmer and safer winter, in the months to come, due to power generators recently provided by the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), recently completed the second delivery of power generators, to the governorate of Abyan, as part of the UAE's relief and development assistance in Yemen.
Ahmed Deha, Director-General of the General Electricity Authority in Abyan, said, the new units would add four MW of power, which would raise the area's total generating capacity to 17.5 MW.
"The installed generating capacity will meet 90 percent of the demand for electricity in Abyan, during the winter," he added.
He noted that, sustained supplies of electricity would help to ease the suffering of the population, caused by repeated power outages.
