The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah said that his government is continuing to implement its plan for the upgrade of the electricity sector and solving its problems, through the implementation of projects supervised by the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) which aims to increase production units so as not to resort again to load shedding. 

During the signing ceremony of the GECOL's contract for the construction of a new station with the consortium of (Urbacon Trading and Contracting and Al-Suwaidi Electric) companies, Dbeibah urged GECOL to start taking quick steps to implement the project of Zliten gas-fired power station which was provided by the German company Siemens, calling on the relevant authorities to facilitate financial procedures and not to rely on administrative bureaucracy.

Dbeibah also hailed GECOL for doing maintenance in power stations in various regions of the country and restoring the destroyed transmission lines in the past years.

The contracted Zliten power station includes 6 turbines with a total production capacity of 1044 megawatts, and its implementation is scheduled to be completed within 26 months.
