Adam: our photovoltaic project in Tunisia

The construction of the 5 MW solar plant in the country will provide energy to the production facilities of the field of the same name.

Providing energy for the Adam oilfield

We opened the Adam photovoltaic plant, located in the Tataouine Governate and in which we have a 50 per cent stake as operator, in December 2019. The energy produced by this installation will be used on the adjacent industrial site, reducing gas consumption and saving the equivalent of 6,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year. The 5MW installation is one element of our co-operation agreement with the nationally-owned Entreprise Tunisienne d’Activités Pétrolières (ETAP) to develop projects generating renewable forms of energy in Tunisia. The project is further confirmation of our commitment to decarbonizing the country’s energy system. 

Safety first

Safety in the workplace is an imperative value we want to share with our employees, contractors and local stakeholders. We are committed to eliminate accidents and protect the integrity of our assets. We consolidate a culture of safety through management and organization models, digital tools and communication initiatives. Our goal is strengthening the awareness of our people and their sense of responsibility toward themselves and others, by expanding HSE tools and digitalization to make corporate processes safer, more efficient and faster. 

Technologies adopted

The installation comprises an innovative hybrid electricity-generating system, with storage batteries of 2.2MWp and 1.5 MWh, that can be easily integrated with the existing gas turbines.
