Eni has begun the construction of a 5MW solar photovoltaic plant at the Adam oil concession in the Tataouine governorate. The energy produced will be used on site, reducing gas consumption and avoiding around 6.500 t/yr of CO2 equivalent emissions. The solar plant is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 as part of a cooperation agreement with Entreprise Tunisienne d’Activités Pétrolières. The project aims to establish a hybrid electricity production system with battery storage devices to integrate with the existing turbines.
