Libya`s General Electricity Company (GECOL) stated that Turkey's ENKA Teknik, which is contracted to build Ubari gas-fired power plant, has agreed to resume work at the plant but after securing the release of four kidnapped engineers.

This came after a meeting held on Tuesday at the headquarters of GECOL that brough together a delegation of Ubari elders and the executive manager of GECOL, Ali Sassi, and a number of company officials.

Sassi said that GECOL had held several meetings with the Turkish company to urge them to return to complete the project, but the Turkish company had conditioned their return on the release of the four kidnapped workers.

The four engineers were kidnapped last November as they headed from Ubari airport to the plant site. Their whereabouts is still unknown.
