The Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Abdel Hamid Dbeibah, met on Monday, with the Board of Directors of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL).

The meeting dealt with the conditions of the electricity grid, the company's plan to confront the increase in energy consumption during the summer, and an evaluation of its workflow.

“The departure of a number of technicians from the German company Siemens caused a delay in testing the Misrata plant before starting its operation”, the GECOL indicated, noting that it will be operated at the end of June, bringing the full capacity of the electricity grid to 7400 megawatts.

For his part, PM Dbeibah stressed the need to follow up on ongoing projects with a focus on the company's plan to reduce consumption and save energy.

He also called for the necessity of completing the contractual procedures for the stations of southern Tripoli and Derna, coordinating with the Audit Bureau regarding them, and working to complete the procedures for supplying prepaid electricity meters, which he said would contribute significantly to reducing citizens' consumption.
