Under the second contract, Areva will deliver two 400kV high-voltage substations which will serve the Sebha and Tobruk regions.

The third contract covers the supply of 69 transformers to reinforce the Libyan electricity network.

The new contracts follow the signing of a joint-venture agreement between Areva’s transmission and distribution division and Gecol.
