The project of Djerba-Zarzis technopark for renewable energy will see the light of the day by the end of the year 2019 or the beginning of 2020, announced its director, Ahmed Friaâ.
This project will take shape, after an increase in the company’s capital.
During the presentation of the next steps of this project, which had been blocked for nine years, Friaa reported that a decree was published in the Official Journal of the Republic of Tunisia, accrediting it as a technopark.
The industrial land agency (AFI) has allocated a land of 160 hectares. A preliminary layout has been presented to the City Council and will be transferred to AFI, he indicated.
The project, estimated at a total cost of 150 million dinars, will create 4,000 jobs in the first part.
It should contain 3 main activities: training, scientific research and technological innovation and foster the emergence of innovative companies.
In this respect, the project should include areas dedicated to training (engineering school), research and innovative companies.
It will also include an industrial zone, an agricultural activities area and a waste treatment and recovery unit.
Tunisian investors will participate in the capital increase of the company, said Friaa.
