Tobruk Power Plant is being tested
The General Electricity Company (GECOL) of Libya announced that the operational commissioning of the first unit of the Tobruk Power Plant will begin today.
It added that it will then power the grid after the initial tests are completed, with 180 megawatt (MW) of gas-fired power generation capacity.
The news comes after similar announcements had been made about units from the fast tracked Misurata and Tripoli West power stations were made over the last few days and weeks.
The announcement of the operation of the Tobruk power station comes as welcomed news to the Libyan public and their troubled political elite after the recent violent demonstrations in protest at acute power cuts.
