US manufacturing and contracting company General Electric (GE) has agreed to build a joint-venture industrial complex in Algeria to construct turbines and other power plant equipment as a condition of a $2bn supply contract with power and gas utility Sonelgaz. On 28 February, Sonelgaz announced that GE had submitted the lowest offer to supply 36 turbines with total capacity of 8,400MW, which will be installed in six power plants over the next four years. It said that only companies willing to establish domestic production of turbines, accumulators and control systems for future projects could bid.
