The Prime Minister of Libya’s Tobruk-based government, Abdullah Al-Thinni, has said that an agreement is about to be signed with Greek investors to develop solar power in Libya.
He told Hadath TV that a number of Greek investment companies would sign the contract with his government “within the coming days”, according to a report from Libya Herald.
An undersea cable would feed the power to the national grid in Greece, and onwards to the rest of Europe, with a power substation to be built in the desert oasis of Jaghbub, 280 kilometres south of Tobruk.
The Thinni administration recently met a group of visiting Greek businessmen in Beida to discuss a number of projects, including the treatment of Libyan war wounded in Greek hospitals.
