Tunisia and Libya to connect power grids, tenders soon

Dec 19, 1996 01:00 AM

The Tunisian parliament on Dec. 19 adopted a plan for connecting the Tunisian and Libyan power grids as part of a larger plan to connect North African and European countries. The connection planned by the year 2000, will complete a larger grid linking Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco and further to Spain and Italy. The ministers in charge of energy in these countries plan to meet in March 1997 to discuss the connection. Tunisia has demanded that Italy join the meeting because it seeks a connection between Tunisia and Italy in parallel to that between Morocco and Spain. The plan to connect the Tunisian and Libyan grids is worth 68 mm dinars ($ 68 mm) to be financed by a loan from the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (AFESD) to be supported 50-50 by the two countries. The adoption of the plan by the Tunisian parliament is to be followed by the selection of an advising firm and then an international tender to select a works firm to install some 300 kilometres of transporting lines, build a transit station in Medenine on the Tunisian side and improve the other stations on each side of the border.
