Al-Mnifi Stresses Strong Relations between Libya-Egypt


The Head of the Libyan Presidential Council, Mohamed Al-Mnifi, stressed the “depth of the strong relations and the historical ties that bind the two peoples of Libya and Egypt,” during a telephone call on Tuesday, between him and Egyptian President, Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi, to exchange congratulations on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha.

Notably, the Prime Minister of Libya’s Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdel-Hamid Dbaiba, authorized the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to contract by direct assignment with the Egyptian Rowad Engineering and Construction Company to implement the Derna gas station project for a total of €1.15 billion euros.

According to Dbaiba’s decision, the contract includes additional work to connect the station to the public network, at a value of €106,868,301. The contract also included long-term maintenance, including spare parts supplied by the unit manufacturer, worth €135,000,00.

In addition to contracting with a consortium consisting of Asseco Group and Shaker Group for an amount of €12,570,000 as a consultant to the project, this brings the total to €1.15 billion euros.
