The photovoltaic power plant in Tataouine, located in the south of the country, started production on December 2022. It will have a maximum installed capacity of 10 MW and will supply more than 20 GWh per year of energy to the national grid, with total CO2eq savings of around 211,000 tonnes over the planned 20 years of operation. The project, of which we are 50% operators, provides for the transfer of produced energy to the national company Société Tunisienne de l'Electricité et du Gaz (STEG) on the basis of a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement. The operated plant was build by a joint venture between Eni and the Entreprise Tunisienne d'Activités Pétrolières (ETAP) State Company dedicated exclusively to the production of energy from renewable sources.
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.
The plant is equipped with a solar tracking system to optimise the energy produced.
