power plant

Construction has commenced on the 1320 MW gas-fired South Tripoli power plant, which will be carried out by Turkish company Çalık in collaboration with German company Siemens.

Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah laid the foundation stone for the gas-fired power plant in a ceremony on Sunday.

Addressing a gathering, the PM said "There will be no more blackouts" as he underscored that the South Tripoli station will be completed promptly.

He also highlighted the strong Libyan-Turkish relationship, which has been strengthened by various construction, reconstruction, and investment projects, as he put.

Since May 2021, the Turkish company Ankateknik has been working alongside Siemens to create an emergency power station in western Tripoli, with a production capacity of 670 megawatts.
