The Renewable Energy Authority of Libya (REAoL) reported that it held a follow up meeting Tuesday with Total Energies to discuss the latest developments and steps to be taken to accelerate the start of implementation of the Sadada 500 MW solar power project.
Commenting on the meeting to Libya Herald, Pascal Bréant, Managing Director of Total Energies Libya said “The project is progressing well and we are still at the level of commercial discussion to prepare for the final agreements in coordination with the various authorities involved.
We are confident that we can manoeuvre the legislative and administrative framework thanks to the strong commitment of the highest-level authorities and TotalEnergies. We are aiming at helping Libyan authorities to provide more reliable and cleaner electricity to the large public and the project is moving forward as per plan to date.”
It will be recalled that in June 2022, France’s Total Energies, the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) and REAoL launched the 500 MW Sadada solar power plant project. Al-Sadada is about 280 km south-east of the capital Tripoli.
According to REAoL, the plant will become the first and largest technology in Libya and will generate up to 152 TWh per year by employing the latest technological applications in the field of solar energy that will use up to 1.2 million solar panels.
