Tataouine, our photovoltaic plant in Tunisia

Workers walking in solar panel plant in Tunisian desert

We are 50% operators of the Tataouine photovoltaic power plant in Tunisia, which is connected to the national grid. The construction of the plant is due to the joint venture entered into between Eni and the state company Entreprise Tunisienne d'Activités Pétrolières (ETAP), which is dedicated exclusively to the production of energy from renewable sources. Tunisia has a target of generating 30% of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030. The south of the country, where our Adam and Tataouine power plants are located, is an ideal area for solar power generation.

Project development and operation

The innovation of solar tracking technology

In Tataouine, in the governorate of Tunisia that goes by the same name, a photovoltaic power plant is in operation that can reach a maximum installed capacity of 10 MW to supply more than 20 GWh of energy per year to the national grid. The plant is equipped with a solar tracking system that optimises the energy that is produced. The project provides for the sale of the energy produced to the national company Société Tunisienne de l'Electricité et du Gaz (STEG).
