The Italian renewable energy company and solar developer Ternienergia has confirmed to pv magazine it will sign a contract to build a 10 MW PV plant in Tunisia on March 23, as previously reported by Italian press agency Ansa.
The company announced the $12.5 million order in January. The contract for the project will be signed with the country’s state-owned utility Société tunisienne de l'électricité et du gaz (STEG), which is also the entity managing Tunisia’s renewable energy program.
The contract will include the full EPC activity, with the supply of PV modules and inverters. No more technical or financial details were released at the time.
Tunisia’s Ministry of Economy issued the Request for Proposal for the construction of the plant in 2014. The project is part of Tunisia’s solar program Plan Solaire Tunisien (PST).
According to Climate Action, the Energy General Direction of the Tunisian Ministry of Energy and Mines has recently announced it will invest $1 billion to install 1 GW of renewable energy generation capacity in 2017. Of this capacity, approximately 650 MW is expected to come in the form of PV plants.
Tunisia aims to cover 30% of its electricity demand with renewable energies in 2030.
