Libya and Turkey have agreed to set up a power station in the eastern Libyan city of Tobruk, with a production capacity of 250 megawatts, according to official sources here.
They said that the project is aimed at solving the current power shortage in that part of the country.
An agreement to that effect was signed between the chairman of a crisis committee in the area, Idriss Ali Triki, and leaders of the Turkish company — The Holding of the Black Sea — which specializes in the generation and production of electric energy source.
The agreement was signed when Triki visited Turkey recently.
The Libyan official did not disclose the cost of the project but said that the Turkish company had asked for security and financial guarantees to enable it complete its work.
He said a team of engineers and technicians from the Turkish company will be in Libya shortly.
