The companies have won the project in the international auction held by Ministry of Energy of Tunisia and STEG. The scope of work of the 20-year project ranges from designing to O&M services.  

The 120-megawatt-peak photovoltaic array will be located in the governorate of Gafsa, which is about 350 kilometers from Tunisian capital, and will cover 400ha. The solar park will be developed under the program subsidized by the government, aimed to deploy 3.8 gigawatts of green power capacity and supply 30 percent of the country’s electricity demand from renewables in ten years. 

This will be the 1st Tunisian IIP project, under which a non-public generator will sell power to the government, utilities and end consumers. 

As commented by CEO of the energy company headquartered in Casablanca, they are happy to be developing this Tunisian photovoltaic project won together with their French partner. Nareva finds it honorable to be able to help Tunisia achieve its Solar Plan and refers to TSP as the nation’s capstone in transition to clean energy.
