MYTILINEOS SA has announced that its subsidiary METKA EGN has recently signed an EPC deal with Eni Tunisia BV.

METKA EGN will undertake the engineering, procurement and construction of an innovative hybrid electricity production system at the ADAM oil concession located in the Tataouine governorate of Tunisia.

The scope of the project includes the installation of 5MW of solar power together with a battery energy storage system, integrated with existing gas turbines in an off-grid set-up. The energy produced will be consumed on-site, enabling the upstream operations to significantly reduce gas consumption and therefore avoid 6,500t/year of CO2-equivalent emissions.

Through this new project, METKA EGN is working with Eni for the first time, while supporting the company in its drive to decarbonise its operations by introducing renewable energy in the countries where it operates worldwide.

The project duration is eight months after which METKA EGN will also carry out operations and maintenance services for the project for two years.
