The port of Tobruk received a commercial steamer with the first gas unit equipment on board for the Tobruk Emergency Electricity Production Project, which will enter the public network within the next 12 months, with a generation capacity of 185 megawatts, and a total capacity of 740 megawatts.

Over the past months, the Municipal Council of Tobruk and the State Electricity Company (GECOL) have held extensive meetings with the Greek “Metka” implementing the project, with a view to developing a strategy to ensure that the project is carried out in accordance with the time frame and to overcome the difficulties.

At the beginning of last April, the Government allocated 977 million dinars to GECOL; It was able to carry out its projects and carry out its work as part of the company’s efforts to avoid excessive load shedding this summer, which had peaked over the past year and had lasted for days without electricity for residents in some cities.
