Gabes Sud is a 10 MW Solar PV project delivering power to the Tunisian network

OVERVIEW

In 2019 Tunisia launched the 3rd Round of the Authorization Regime, requesting proposals to build a total of 70MW of solar projects (6 x 10MW, and 10 x 1MW) on a B.O.O. basis.

In June 2020 TuNur was successfully awarded one of the 10MW projects following a competitive tender. The project consists of a 10MW solar photovoltaic Power Plant located on a 20 hc site in Gabes capable of producing over 24 GWh per year of carbon free power. The power plant will be connected to the STEG HV network and deliver low cost power to support the electricity demand in Tunisia.

TuNur is developing the Gabes Sud Project in partnership with Shanghai Electric, one of the worlds largest construction groups with over 92GW of turnkey projects completed, and Erebus Investments, a local Tunisian company.

Some of the key benefits of the project are:
