General comments:

This is a planned project in a very early stage of development

The TuNur project is a commercial concept which aims at producing and exporting clean energy from Tunisia’s deserts. The Sahara desert provides significant land and solar resource, and existing technology can provide the solution.

TuNur project consists of three projects in one:

  • Construction and operation of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants with a capacity of up to 2GW in the Kebili Governorate
  • 2GW High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) on-land and sub-marine cable from Tunisia to Italy
  • Sale of electricity to customers in Europe: Once landed in Italy power can be transported to other European countries such as Germany, Switzerland, France and the UK
