Siemens to Upgrade Two Libyan Power Plants
Siemens will upgrade two power plants in Libya for the country’s state-owned General Electricity Company of Libya.
Under the US$136 million contract, Siemens will be responsible for the inspection, service, upgrade and maintenance of the Khoms Steam Power plant and the Western Gas Turbine Plant in Ruwais.
The upgrade will help provide reliable power by modernizing these two power plants, Siemens said in a statement.
Libya is in the process of upgrading and expanding its power facilities, but has been hampered by continued unrest following its civil war in 2011. In October, Ali Zidan was elected prime minister. The successful election has brought some stability to the nation, along with a wave of infrastructure work, including the Siemens’ contract, as well as a US$316 million contract to France’s Alstom for overhauling Libya’s gas plants.
