The General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) said it had operated the urgent project of the first unit of the West Tripoli Power Plant with a capacity of 185 megawatts. It added that this unit was supposed to be operational in last May but was damaged due to the clashes in the area at the time.

The CEO of GECOL Wiam Al-Abdeli said the unit was working properly and would join the grid in full capacity in two days, adding that the second unit would join the grid in one week ahead of the completion of the project's four units which would then add 670 megawatts during this July.

Al-Abdeli said the project is implemented by a coalition of companies between Turkish ENKA and Germany's Siemens.
