The Head of the Audit Bureau, Khaled Shakshak said on Friday that state officials were incapable of persuading certain hostile forces present in Sirte to permit straightforward maintenance of transmission lines, in order that the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) could begin to transfer 600 megawatts from Al-Sarir station.

Shakshak stated that this energy will, unfortunately now be lost in the coming summer peak season for electricity demand.

He further explained that the establishment of a replacement power plant of 600 megawatts would take at least two years to complete, at the cost of at least 2.7 billion Libyan dinars.
