Tunisia has granted licences to three international companies to produce 500 megawatts of electricity from renewables, a government official told Reuters on Wednesday.

The projects are worth $410.41 million and will create 2,000 jobs, the energy minister told Reuters on the sidelines of an energy conference.

The companies are Norway’s Scatec (SCATC.OL), Engie Nareva and TBEA-AMEA, the official said. TBEA-AMEA is a consortium between AMEA Power, a subsidiary of United Arab Emirates-based Al Nowais Investments (ANI), and China’s Xinjiang TBEA Group Co Ltd. Engie Nareva is a partnership between France’s Engie SA and Morocco’s Nareva Holding SA.
