Fields of activities



The infrastructure sector in Tunisia has shown significant progress over the past two decades with important investments mainly in road transport and railways, housing and commercial buildings, as well as utilities (energy and water).

As an example, Tunisia currently accounts for more than 20,000 km of roads, used to transport about 80% of merchandise. Investment in different infrastructure sectors can be in the form of EPC contracting and/or under Public Private Partnership (PPP) frameworks, hence, involving the private sector from both Tunisia and abroad. Infrastructure development had been hampered and slowed down following the 2011’s political and social unrest.

However, several projects have been proposed and planned by the Government over most recent years, some of which are currently under development. Please refer to:


ECAS has the expertise and capability to identify, originate and structure new business activities and investment opportunities in the infrastructure sector in Tunisia.

We can further use our database of experts for the elaboration of market and feasibility studies and the assessment of challenges and investment opportunities adapted to the country’s sectoral context as well as the socio-economic and political situations.

Civil engineers for roads and highways, or for water supply infrastructure including for irrigation, as well as specialists in local regulations, among others, can be provided specifically for the development of projects, in the framework of human resources management contracts.



Tunisian industries cover several economic sectors including mechanical and electrical equipment, construction materials, chemical products such as phosphate production and exports, textile, among others. The country is also home to different totally exporting industrial activities such as ships manufacturing for European markets, with the participation of international companies, notably, in the Free Economic Zone (FEZ) of Bizert.

ECAS provides support to international companies and industrial groups operating in Tunisia to enhance local industries, hence, contribute to local job creation and overall economic growth. We have the expertise and capability to establish industrial groups in Tunisia, to provide contract management services between international companies and local stakeholders and to identify as well as manage all human resources required for the effective operation of local facilities and plants.



Environmental challenges are at the forefront of international debates and addressed on priority agendas of many Governments, international organisations, the donor community, NGOs and several private sector companies.

Local public stakeholders have launched several initiatives aimed at improving the environmental situation in the country, among which is the 90 million EUR project of depollution of Bizert Lake, as well as the AFD financing and technical assistance project aimed at supporting local companies in developing environmental protection projects, in partnership with the ANME and the ANPE.

ECAS is supportive of such initiatives and of private or public sector companies involved in promoting and expanding the use of environmentally friendly technologies in the framework of viable projects, whether in waste management and waste-to-energy projects or water treatment business activities, among other examples.


Indeed, environment and energy are strongly interlinked, with the recognised benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency investments in terms of GHG emissions reduction. ECAS’ support translates into the usage of different tools based on a strong knowledge of local and regional environmental challenges, business opportunities as well as local institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks.



Energy is the cornerstone for improved living conditions, and a vital resource for enhancing education, health care, business development and general economic growth of a country, a region or a continent.

At ECAS, we contribute to this growth through our support to energy project development, in the fields of electricity supply (from power generation to last mile connection), renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Our team is composed of experts with 20 years’ expertise in the Tunisian energy sector and market, and with preceding professional experience in the public and private sectors. We also have access to experts previously acting as advisors to the Ministry of Energy and Industry, and having occupied high-level positions at STEG, ANME, among local institutions. Tunisia relies almost entirely on fossil fuels to meet its domestic energy needs with about 90% of installed capacity based on hydrocarbon sources.


In order to diversify its energy mix, the Tunisian Government has launched and awarded a series of on-grid IPP renewable power projects using wind and solar technologies, and aims to increase significantly the share of renewable energy in its energy mix. As of 2019, renewable energy accounted for about only 6% of total installed capacity. The recently awarded projects will add a total of 500MW solar and about 200MW wind and are listed as follows:

ECAS supports companies to establish as IPP developers and/or EPC contractors in Tunisia, through the provision of tailored services including contract management, expertise, strategic studies and advice based on a full mastery of the Tunisian energy sector and market as well as implications of socio-economic and political contexts.
