Tunisia’s Ministry of Energy, Mines and Renewable Energies has issued a call for 70MW of solar PV projects in the second round of its 'authorisation regime'.

In the tender, 60MW will be made up of separate projects with maximum capacity of 10MW each. Meanwhile, the remaining 10MW will be made up of separate projects with a maximum size of 1MW.

Power from the projects will be sold exclusively to the Tunisian Company of Electricity and Gas (STEG) and the deadline for submissions is 15 August.

In the first round of the authorization programme, a total of 64MW out of a possible 70MW was awarded this month.

Earlier this month, the ministry also issued a tender for 500MW of PV projects and another 500MW of wind.
