Morocco: Prequals sought for Noor Midelt Phase I IPPs

Issue 329 - 05 Aug 2016 | 1 minute read
The Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (Masen) has launched a request
for qualification to design, build, carry out operation and maintenance (O&M) and finance the 300MW-380MW Noor Midelt Phase I solar project. Masen plans to use concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) units to produce electricity during daytime and secure five hours of peak production after sunset, from CSP with thermal storage. Following the pattern of recent contract awards in Morocco – and peer group markets including South Africa and Dubai – pricing of the electricity is expected to be very competitive to win the contracts.
