Renewable Energies in Tunisia. Sidi Mansour wind farm is in progress.
The construction of the 30 MW Sidi Mansour wind farm in Tunisia has begun, a pioneering project in independent wind energy production in Tunisia. The Sidi Mansour project, developed by Climate Fund Managers and UPC Renewables, will drive the country's goal of 30% renewable energy by 2030, announced in 2016 as part of the Tunisian government's Solar 2030 Plan.
The construction of the Sidi Mansour wind farm has a budget of around US$40 million. This project will activate the country's economy and the creation of local employment, as well as favouring the decrease in the use of imported fossil fuels, currently the main source of energy.
Barlovento has been working in the country for several years, mainly in activities of measurements and feasibility studies in wind, solar and storage plants. Barlovento also has many references in other countries of the MENA region: Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, etc.
As usual, in Barlovento we work with the independence and rigour that best describe us to offer the highest quality always at the service of our clients wherever they need us.
