Tunisia's first floating PV project
Tunisian state-owned energy Société Tunisienne de l'Electricité et du Gaz (STEG) is planning a 200 kW floating PV plant at the Lake of Tunis in the capital. A press release provided by the power company stated the installation needs to be operational following year and will power the Tunis area of Berges du Lac. The project will be funded with an unspecified amount from the Private Sector Study and Aid Fund of the Directorate-General of the French Ministry of Economy. The plant will be constructed by French power gigantic Total, via its Qair renewables advancement business, previously Qadran International. The project will come under the guidance of the Tunisian Ministry of Energy, Mines and also Energy Transition, which has actually also asked Qair to examine the country's floating solar capacity. Qair is already constructing a 10 MW ground-mounted solar plant in Tunisia which was selected by the federal government in a tender finalized in June. In January, the Total-owned programmer safeguarded the tender to construct a 4 MW floating PV project in the Seychelles by sending the lowest cost bid for the power to be generated: $0.095/ kWh.

Tunisia announces grid-connection of its first solar park
Tunisian prime minister Youssef Chahed has officially commissioned the country’s first large-scale solar park, the 10 MW Tozeur I solar facility. The project is owned by Tunisian state-owned utility Société tunisienne de l’électricité et du gaz (STEG), and is located near Tozeur, in the south of the country. STEG kicked off the tender for the project in 2014. Italian solar developer Ternienergia, won the €12.5 million EPC contract for the project in March 2017. The €16 million project was financed by German development bank KFW, under Tunisia’s Plan Solaire Tunisien (PST) program. KFW provided a €12 million low-interest rate loan for the plant’s construction, and a further €0.5 million for additional services related to the project. A twin project is coming STEG is also currently developing another 10 MW solar park in the area, the Centrale Photovoltaique Tozeur II. The tender for this project was issued by the company in December 2017. Both Tozeur projects are the only large-scale solar plants being developed in the country outside of the government’s tender mechanism, which includes two separate 70 MW tenders for projects up to 10 MW, and a unique tender for 500 MW of larger solar parks. Preliminary results of this tender indicate surprisingly low bids, the lowest coming in at $0.0244/kWh. Projects selected in all of these auctions are expected to sell power to STEG under a long-term PPA. Under its renewable energy strategy, Tunisia aims at achieving 4.7 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030.

Tunisia launches tender for another 70 MW of solar
Tunisia’s Ministry of Energy, Mines and Renewable Energies has kicked-off a third tender for the development and construction of several solar power plants not exceeding 10 MW in size. Through this third procurement exercise, the Tunisian government is seeking to build six solar power plants with an installed power capacity of 10 MW each and ten 1 MW small solar parks. The deadline to submit project proposals is November 26 and plants will have to be constructed under the Build Own Operate (BOO) mode. Selected projects will sell electricity to Tunisia’s state-owned utility, Société Tunisienne de l’électricité et du gaz (STEG) under a long-term PPA. The tender is part of a series planned by the Tunisian government, which aims to install around 1 GW of renewable energy capacity in the period 2017-2020. Through a first tender of the same kind, which was launched in May 2017, the Tunisian government contracted seven 10 MW projects from domestic companies and Tunisian-international consortia. Construction the first project started in May. A second tender for another 70 MW of solar was launched last year. In this process, the Tunisian authorities decided on six 10 MW projects proposed by Tunisian and international developers. The ministry is also preparing to tender another 500 MW of solar for larger projects. So far, it has released a list of 16 prequalified developers. The round will facilitate the construction of a 200 MW solar plant in Tataouine, in the Sahara Desert; two 100 MW PV facilities in Kairouan and Gafsa; and two 50 MW solar parks in Sidi Bouzid and Tozeur. Under its renewable energy strategy, Tunisia aims to deploy around 4.7 GW of clean energy capacity by 2030.
