London, 9 January 2021:
Turkish energy company ENKA announced Wednesday (6 January) that in consortium with Germany’s Siemens, it is about to start the construction of the Fast-track Projects of Misrata’s 650 MW Simple Cycle Power Plant and the Tripoli West 671 MW Simple Cycle Power Plant.
The contracts for projects had been signed with the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to meet Libya’s acute power generation deficit.
ENKA reported that the Misrata project is based on a power island configuration for two SGT5-PAC 4000F Siemens combustion turbine generator units, whereas the Tripoli West project is based on a power island configuration for four SGT5-PAC 2000E Siemens combustion turbine generator units.
Dual Fuel configurations
The turbines of the plants will be dual fuel fired with light fuel oil and natural gas. Power will be generated in the CTGs and stepped up through main transformers to the grid. Both projects are planned to be completed in 2022.
