Morocco: Bids in but no decision on 850MW wind farms
Issue 285 - 26 Sep 2014
State utility Office National de l’Electricité et de l’Eau Potable (ONEE) has finally opened bids for 850MW of power to be generated at five sites, a key element in the Integrated Wind Energy Programme (PIEE), which aims to generate 2GW by 2020. Decisions on the 850MW element (tender no SP 40 311) have been delayed while ONEE has put together financing and bidders have contested some of the tough conditions requested for the build-own-operate-transfer scheme. These include the call for local manufacturing to be included in bids, notably from small and medium-size companies, along with technology transfer.
