Head of Libya’s Presidential Council approves GECOL’s additional 2100 megawatts plan

News

September 2019 – The Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj approved Wednesday the operation plan of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) that aims to add 1300 megawatts by the end of 2019 and 800 megawatts by June 2020.

This came in a meeting for Al-Sarraj and the Head of Audit Bureau Khalid Shakshak, Minister of Finance Faraj Bumatiri, GECOL’s Chairman Abdelmajid Hamza, CEO Ali Sassi and other officials.

The meeting also discussed development projects as GECOL officials vowed to improve power services remarkably with the advent of winter.

Last August, Al-Sarraj approved a strategy that has a short term, midterm and long term plans to solve electricity problems and to increase the capacity of electricity output.

Libya’s electricity sector and its services have been very poor over the last years as there have been constant massive shortages amid very high demand for power, thus GECOL has fallen back upon long load shedding hours, especially in Tripoli and its surrounding.
