Tripoli, 18 December 2016:
The General Electricity Company, GECOL, says that output from the new second unit of the Khoms power station is now producing 90 megawatts of electricity. A week ago the second unit was producing just 40 MW.
The aim is that it will be fully functioning and producing 262 MW of power by the end of January. At that point the plant’s Turkish constructors, Calik Enerji, is expected to have out all its remaining 100 or so staff. Altogether the twin-unit station is due to add 526 MW to the national grid.
Meanwhile in a separate development, GECOL has announcd that Benghazi’s de facto mayor, Ahmed Al Oraibi, who was appointed by the Libyan National Army, has signed a LD 3-million deal with the company in Benghazi to restore electricity to Gwarsha and other liberated areas.
