First Unit of Tobruk Gas-Fired Plant Back in Service

The first unit of the Tobruk gas-fired electricity plant has been put back into service after undergoing operational tests, the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) announced on Saturday.

The company expects the production capacity to gradually increase, as the station is considered one of the major projects aimed at improving the production capacity of the grid by producing 470 megawatts.

According to the GECOL’s plans, the second unit of the Tobruk station is scheduled to be operational no later than mid-December, while the third unit will begin operating at the beginning of January 2024.
