Tripoli, 2 May 2014:
The government . . .[restrict]has given the go-ahead to the construction of five wastewater and sewage treatment plants in the west of the country that will allow a number of housing projects to proceed.
At the ordinary cabinet meeting on Wednesday, authorisation was given to a request from the Ministry of Housing and Utilities to approve a contract with Munich-based construction company Bavaria Engineering for sewerage plants in Rajban, Reyayna and Kikla in Jebel Nafusa and in Sinaon and Darj near Ghadames.
Bavaria Engineering, which has specialised in solar powered projects including solar-powered sewerage plants, has been active in Libya since 1984. It was involved in the construction and more recently the upgrading of the sewerage plant in Sebha. It has also been involved in the creation of the Solar Power Centre in Tripoli.
A number of pre-revolution housing projects have been held up not only because of demands for compensation by contractors but also because no infrastructure – drains and sewerage, streets, and the supply of water, electricity and telephone lines – had been planned. [/restrict]
