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.
