Libya’s Prime Minister Abd Alhamid Aldabaibi visited the completed model solar energy project at the Centre for Solar Energy Research and Studies (CSERS) in Tajura.
Private sector Alhandasya company implemented the project at the CSERS. The project is funded by the Libyan government.
The Prime Minister discussed the technical aspects of the project and expressed his admiration for this achievement as a model for applying solar energy in Libya, where the concentration of sunshine hours is among the highest in the world, Alhandasya reported.
The solar power project will be connected to the national grid producing 62 KW. The solar panels were designed in such a manner that the area underneath them will be utilized as a car park, Alhandasya’s Chairman Elmabrouk Saleh explained.
