A malfunction at the plant in Al Saja’a area led to the closure of gas pipeline valves, which feed into the stations of Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWA).

The technical teams worked to isolate the main valve feeding into Sharjah electricity stations, returning gas supply through them by 80 percent, which helped fully restore electricity in the emirate.

Work was also underway to fix the major technical fault and restart the entire gas plant complex.
