100MW! PV Plant to Be Launched in Tunisia

PVTIME – A ceremony was held to inaugurate a solar power plant jointly initiated by the Tunisian government and AMEA Power in the governorate of Kairouan, in the centre of Tunisia.

This particular project is the first large-scale photovoltaic power plant in Tunisia, with an installed capacity of 100MW. It is designed to generate approximately 5.5 TWh of clean electricity over 25 years, which is equivalent to reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 5 million tonnes or planting 12 million trees in the Tunisian Sahara.

It is also expected to provide a secure and sustainable electricity supply for local residents, provide sufficient clean, green and renewable energy for local industrial and agricultural production and people’s lives in Tunisia, contribute to Tunisia’s energy structure adjustment and industrial transformation and upgrading, and play a positive role in local economic and social development and ecological environmental protection.

 In addition, the EPC of the project will be provided by CEEC Tianjin and Northwest Electric Power Design Institute of CPECC.
