The additional generation capacity was placed at strategic locations across the country for a period of two months to act as a back-up for the Tunisian grid.

The Aggreko plants helped ensure a consistent and reliable power supply throughout the summer when energy demands were at their highest.

The contract, awarded by the Société Tunisienne d’Electricitié et du Gas (STEG), saw Aggreko install four separate power plants of 30MW each at Enfida, Mateur, Bouficha and El Jem.

Aggreko claimed that the solution has helped to ensure a continuous supply of power to major population and industrial areas, while also supporting key tourist centres vital to the Tunisian economy.

Aggreko North and West Africa managing director Christophe Jacquin said, “This project highlights Aggreko’s ability to not only provide large and complex power solutions to our customers but also our ability to do so both rapidly and for relatively short periods of time.

“The tactical use of temporary power to address seasonal energy shortfalls is a valuable option for our large utility customers as it allows them to maintain critical supply while taking the steps to address the gaps in their generation and supply networks.”
