Second Tripoli West project cargo load departs Hamburg
The Tripoli West power project in Libya will soon be receiving its second delivery of project cargo from Hamburg. The project forwarder, DAKO Worldwide Transport said it has loaded the next part charter for the project at the start of the week.
It is the second shipment from Hamburg including equipment weighing a total of 2,300 tons. It adds to the two turbines and two generators that have already been discharged in Tripoli. DAKO informed that it will also handle project cargo deliveries from China and Indonesia for the Tripoli West development.
The loading in Hamburg, that took place earlier this week, was completed in cooperation with its client, Wallmann & Co. and the shipping company Sloman Neptun Schiffahrts, DAKO said in a brief statement through its social media channels.
Tripoli West power project
In 2017, Turkish engineering firm ENKA in consortium with Siemens signed the contract for the construction of the fast-track project of Tripoli West 671 MW simple cycle power plant in Libya. The contract for the project including supply and installation of gas turbine units was signed with the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to meet growing electricity demand of Libya.
The project is based on a power island configuration for four SGT5-PAC 2000E Siemens combustion turbine generator units. The turbines of the plants will be dual-fuel fired with light fuel oil and natural gas.
The project construction began in November last year and is scheduled for completion on near the end of January 2022.
