Mitsubishi Power commissions the 450 MW Rades C CCGT power plant in Tunisia
Japan’s Mitsubishi Power has started operating the 450 MW Rades C Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power plant, owned by the Tunisian state-owned power utility Société Tunisienne de l’Electricité et du Gaz (STEG), and located near the city of Rades, in northern Tunisia. The plant was developed by a Mitsubishi Power-led consortium alongside its partner Sumitomo Corporation.
The power plant represents about 10% of the country’s current installed capacity and will be hydrogen-ready. The project was financed by the Japanese Official Development Assistant (ODA) organised by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) under the Japanese government's "Partnership for Quality Infrastructure" initiative.
In 2020, gas represented 86% of Tunisia’s total installed capacity with 5.2 GW and 95% of its power generation with 20.3 TWh.
Enerdata has developed a market research service to screen, monitor and analyse the development of power generation assets.
