Clal Industries and Investments, controlled by Len Blavatnik, subsidiary Mashav Initiation and Development Ltd, is to expand capacity at its private power station which provides electricity to Nesher Cement Enterprises of Israel. With an investment of US$90m, capacity at the station is to be increased initially by 50MW and thereafter by 70MW.
Mashav is 75 per cent owned by Clal Industries and 25 per cent owned by CRH. In 2010, Mashav’s 50W natural gas-driven power station secured a 20-year independent power producer license. The extra power not utilised by Nesher will be sold to private clients. (Source: Globes of Israel)
