GECOL announces the arrival of the fourth gas turbine to the West Tripoli power project
The General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) announced the arrival of the fourth gas turbine to the construction site of the West Tripoli Power Plant project, reaffirming that work continues on placing it in its base.
The fourth turbine, which arrived on Saturday through the port of Tripoli, was preceded by the first, second, and third turbines, which arrived last August, with a production capacity of 170 megawatts per turbine.
The West Tripoli Power Plant project is being implemented by the consortium of the German company Siemens and Turkey’s Enka.
The GECOL is counting on the West Tripoli plant project to reduce the hours of load-shedding and raise the production capacity of power, as the plant’s production is expected to reach 670 megawatts following the completion of the construction and operational works.
