The Chairman of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL), accompanied by the members of the Board of Directors and the General Manager of the company, paid an inspection visit to the west Tripoli gas power plant project, which is being implemented under the supervision of the German company, Siemens and the Turkish Enka.
The GECOL stated on its official Facebook page that the project aims to raise the station’s production capacity to 670 megawatts, indicating that the administrative team’s visit came to determine the progress of the project.
It also reaffirmed its keenness to overcome all the difficulties facing the work teams, and to complete the project as soon as possible to fill the deficit in the production of electric energy. It is noteworthy that the GECOL signed last January, a contract with Siemens and Enka, to build two power plants in Libya, in response to the country's growing needs for electricity.
The contract includes the construction of rapid projects for a power plant with a capacity of 650 megawatts in the city of Misrata, and another with a capacity of 671 megawatts in Tripoli, according to the Turkish newspaper ‘Daily Sabah’.
