Libya’s GECL & South Korea’s Daewoo E&C sign an agreement to build electricity plant

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

SEOUL – The state-owned General Electricity Company of Libya (GECL) signed on with South Korea’s Daewoo Engineering and Construction to build a power plant that will alleviate electricity woes in the country, Daewoo E&C said Tuesday.

The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding to build Western Mountain Power Plant with the General Electricity Company of Libya on March 20.

The Western Mountain Power Plant is a 900MW-capacity generator located in Al Hawamind, some 200 kilometers southwest from Tripoli.

Under the new MOU with Daewoo, the plant will add a heat exchanger to retrieve waste heat and a 450MW-capacity steam turbine to the existing gas turbine generator.

Daewoo E&C was rated as South Korea’s fourth-best construction company in an evaluation by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport last year.
