Libya state-owned electricity company, Siemens sign agreement to build two power plants
The General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL), has signed an agreement with Siemens, the German company, to set up two electricity plants in Tripoli and Misurata, on Thursday in Berlin.
The ceremony was attended by the head of the Presidential Council (PC), Faiz Al-Sarraj, who arrived in Germany from the United States.
The capacity of the power station in Tripoli will be 690 megawatts, while the one in Misurata will reach 640 megawatts.
The cooperation between the two companies comes as a rescue mission by Siemens after the Turkish company Enka had left Libya’s Ubari city following the abduction of four of its workers.
