The Tunisian Ministry of Energy, Mines and Renewable Energy has issued a tender for 500MW of PV projects within the country.

With this tender, the Tunisian government plans to develop five different projects, headlined by a 200MW power station that will be developed in the Tataouine governorate.

Other planned projects include 100MW PV projects in the governorates of Kaiouran and Gafsca, along with 50MW projects in Tozeur and Sidi Bouzid governorates.

These five projects will all be developed under a build, own and operate (BOO) model, with interested developers now asked to issue pre-qualification applications as part of the tender.

Back in April, the Tunisia government announced plans to issue tenders for a total of 1GW of PV and wind projects.
