Thousands of jellyfish arrived via seawater to the Rutenberg power station in Ashkelon, according to the IEC. Employees of the Israel Electric Corporation have been dealing with them since the early hours of Wednesday night.

As far as the IEC is concerned, this may disrupt production at the station considerably. The jellyfish are concentrated in the filters of the power station, which are intended to prevent them from blocking the operating systems. The jellyfish are instead diverted to dedicated tankers to make regular operations possible.

In the coastal power stations of the Israel Electric Corporation, seawater is used to cool the energy systems.
