Turkish firm ENKA, Siemens to build energy plants in Libya

Turkish energy firm, ENKA, in consortium with Siemens will soon start the development of 1,321 MW Simple Cycle Power Plants in Libya.
The contracts for the two power vegetation, 650 MW in Misrata and Tripoli West 671 MW, had been signed with the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to satisfy the rising electricity demand in Libya.
According to ENKA, the Misrata venture relies on an influence island configuration for two SGT5-PAC 4000F Siemens combustion turbine generator units, whereas the Tripoli West project relies on an influence island configuration for 4 SGT5-PAC 2000E Siemens combustion turbine generator models.
The turbines of the crops shall be dual-fuel fired with gentle gasoline oil and natural gasoline. Power will be generated and stepped up via the primary transformers to the grid.
The two projects are deliberate to be accomplished in 2022.
ENKA has been current in Libya for almost 50 years developing mega-scale tasks from industrial and energy crops to building tasks and significant infrastructure.
The Turkish firm has other vitality tasks in Libya, including a 640-MW capability gasoline turbine power plant in Ubari in central Libya which was examined for connection to the Libyan energy grid in October 2017, however has since failed to begin operating as a result of political instability and civil wars within the region.
ENKA, also a building and engineering company, has completed three energy plants in Libya, 24 city growth and housing, 6 infrastructure and 24 industrial tasks together with cement and desalination vegetation across the country.
The firm attributes its challenge supply successes to a proven functionality and important experience working in challenging environments with lack of infrastructure and underneath extraordinarily harsh weather conditions.
Another Turkish firm, Karadeniz Holding, has proposed to provide electricity to the western part of Libya. A technical staff from the company visited Libya last year to present the proposal.
Best runs a fleet of floating energy generators generally recognized as power ships which plug into electrical energy grids after berthing. The firm target the Libyan-produced diesel and natural fuel to deliver as a lot as 1,000 MWh.
