Lebanese power under construction

Four new electric power stations are being built in Lebanon. Two will use combustion turbines from GEC Alsthom and another two 450-MW combined-cycle stations are being supplied by Ansaldo of Italy. In September 1995, Electricite de France signed a (US)$19 million contract to assist the Lebanese authorities during construction of these power stations, which is set to begin in mid-1996 with the stations fully operational in 1998.
