Turkish agency ENKA, Siemens to construct energy crops in Libya

Turkish energy agency, ENKA, in consortium with Siemens will quickly start the development of 1,321 MW Simple Cycle Power Plants in Libya.
The contracts for the 2 energy plants, 650 MW in Misrata and Tripoli West 671 MW, had been signed with the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to meet the growing electricity demand in Libya.
According to ENKA, the Misrata project is based on a power island configuration for two SGT5-PAC 4000F Siemens combustion turbine generator units, whereas the Tripoli West project relies on a power island configuration for four SGT5-PAC 2000E Siemens combustion turbine generator items.
The turbines of the plants will be dual-fuel fired with light fuel oil and natural gas. Power will be generated and stepped up by way of the principle transformers to the grid.
Remote are deliberate to be accomplished in 2022.
ENKA has been present in Libya for nearly 50 years creating mega-scale projects from industrial and energy plants to constructing projects and significant infrastructure.
The Turkish company has different power initiatives in Libya, together with a 640-MW capability fuel turbine energy plant in Ubari in central Libya which was tested for connection to the Libyan energy grid in October 2017, but has since failed to start operating because of political instability and civil wars in the region.
ENKA, also a building and engineering firm, has completed three power plants in Libya, 24 city improvement and housing, 6 infrastructure and 24 industrial initiatives together with cement and desalination crops throughout the country.
The agency attributes its project supply successes to a proven functionality and important expertise working in difficult environments with lack of infrastructure and underneath extremely harsh climatic conditions.
Another Turkish agency, Karadeniz Holding, has proposed to provide electricity to the western part of Libya. A technical team from the company visited Libya final yr to present the proposal.
Karadeniz Holding runs a fleet of floating energy generators known as energy ships which plug into electricity grids after berthing. The company target the Libyan-produced diesel and natural fuel to ship as much as 1,000 MWh.
