Zliten city's municipality said MST Technology from Italy had talked of intentions to carry out large investments in the city.

On its Facebook page, the municipality said MST Technology delivered proposals to set up two projects - one to build a power plant of 424 megawatts output capacity that will cost 289.300.000 euros and the second to build a desalination station of 50000 m³ output capacity per day that will cost 71.020.000 euros.

Zliten's mayor, Muftah Hamadi, sent a letter to the Head of the General Authority of Investment Promotion as well as the Privatization Affairs Department asking for approval of the two projects.

Zliten mayor's letter also urged for coordination in all relevant matters with the Ministry of Economy, General Company of Electricity in Libya and the Water and Sewage Company in Libya to ensure correct implementation of the projects.
