Eni has started building a 10MW project in Tataouine, in the south of Tunisia, having started work on another 5MW plant in the same region in March.

The latest project, which was awarded to the Eni and State Company Entreprise Tunisienne d’Activités Pétrolières (ETAP) consortium following a public tender issued by the Tunisian authorities, will supply electricity to the State-owned company Société Tunisienne de l'Electricité et du Gaz (STEG).

The project will be carried out by a new joint venture between Eni and ETAP which focuses exclusively on the production of energy from renewables. It will use trackers and generate more than 20GWh/year.

Eni will also complete its construction of the 5MW project at Adam oil concession in Tataouine this year, whose power will be used directly by the industrial site. The plant uses energy storage systems that will be integrated into the plant’s existing turbines, reducing gas consumption, operating costs and emissions.
