These steps will make Noor Ouarzazate the largest multi-technological solar production site in the world with a capacity of 580 megawatts.


The plant represents a critical step in the Moroccan Solar Energy Program, which aims to generate 42 percent of its electrical power from renewable energy by 2020, and 52 percent by 2030.


Bakkoury noted that by the end of the current year Morocco will have 887 MW of solar power capacity in operation, 1,207 MW of wind power and north of 1,700 MW of hydro power plants.


Besides the launch of the phases II, III and IV at Noor Ouarzazate, this year Masen is also expected to complete the technical and financial evaluations of the offers for the Noor Midelt, Noor Tafilalet and Noor PV 2 projects.
