The damage caused by the earthquake to the industry was revealed
Electricity consumption, which reflects the production performance in organized industrial zones (OIZ), has halved in earthquake-stricken provinces. The Organized Industrial Zones Supreme Organization (OSBUK) announced the data on electricity consumption in industrial zones in earthquake-stricken provinces.
Accordingly, electricity usage in 15 OIZs included in the OSBUK Energy Monitoring System in these provinces decreased by 46.74 percent in February compared to January and by 46.72 percent compared to February last year.
This development means a decrease of nearly half in industrial production and gross value added production in the provinces of the region. Since the earthquakes occur on the 6th of the month, it seems that the total decrease in the remaining 22 days is much higher.
Iskenderun OIZ decreased by 88.57 percent
In all of February, including the first week of February, compared to the same month of last year, consumption decreased by 88.57 percent especially in İskenderun OIZ, 78.96 percent in Adıyaman OIZ, 77.86 percent in Kahramanmaraş OIZ, 73.48 percent in Malatya Merkez I. OIZ and 73.03 percent in Şanlıurfa OIZ. As of the January-February period, electricity consumption in 15 OIZ decreased by 23 percent compared to the same period of last year.
According to the OSBUK Energy Monitoring System, which covers 124 OIZs across the country, total electricity consumption decreased by 18.86 percent in February. Electricity consumption in all OIZs, which was 3 million 695 thousand 355 Mw in February last year, decreased to 2 million 998 thousand 414 Mw this year.
Declines in industrial electricity consumption in 11 provinces and across Turkey mean a decline in industrial production, a loss of national income and a decline in the overall economic growth rate.
Compared to the same month last year, electricity consumption in OIZs decreased by 57.79 percent in the Eastern Mediterranean region, 43.69 percent in the Mediterranean region, 40.13 percent in the Southeast, 27.55 percent in the Black Sea, 9.17 percent in the Aegean, 5.94 percent in Marmara and 2.68 percent in Central Anatolia. Electricity consumption in OIZs increased by 1.85 percent in January compared to the same month last year. With the decline in February, electricity consumption in OIZs decreased by 8.65 percent as of January-February periods.
