Turkish power-ship operator Karadeniz Holding is preparing a bid to supply up to 1,000 megawatts of electricity to conflict-hit Libya and will submit it soon, the company said on Monday.


Libya, where Turkey supports the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord, has been hit by power supply problems due to the conflict there.


A senior Turkish official told Reuters two weeks ago Turkey is ready to start rebuilding Libya after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s senior deputies visited Tripoli to discuss cooperation on energy, construction and banking.


Karadeniz - whose Karpowership supplies power to more than 10 countries in Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean - would be a company capable of making up the energy deficit in Libya, the Turkish official had said.
