A consortium of Greece’s Metka and Italy’s Anslado has been awarded the contract to build a 700MW power plant in Syria.

The group was the low bidder for the project. A team of Germany’s Siemens and the local Al-Shatta for Technical Engineering also submitted a bid.

The project is the largest engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) scheme ever won by Metka.

The client is the Public Establishment for Electricity Generation & Transmission.
