ENKA in consortium with Siemens, is about to start the construction of the Fast-track Projects of Misurata 650 MW Simple Cycle Power Plant and Tripoli West 671 MW Simple Cycle Power Plant in Libya. The contracts for projects have been signed with the General Electricity Company of Libya to meet growing electricity demand of Libya.
The Misurata project is based on a power island configuration for two SGT5-PAC 4000F Siemens combustion turbine generator units, whereas the Tripoli West 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. Power will be generated in the CTGs and stepped up through main transformers to the grid. Both projects are planned to be completed in 2022.
