MOROCCO: EDF, Masdar And Green Of Africa To Build Noor Midelt Solar Park

The Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy has chosen a consortium composed of EDF Renewables, Masdar and the Moroccan company Green of Africa. Together, the three companies will build the 800 MW Noor Midelt concentrated solar power plant.

New developments in the Noor Midelt solar project in central Morocco. Following an international call for tenders, the Moroccan Sustainable Energy Agency chose a consortium composed of EDF Renouvelables, a subsidiary of Électricité de France, Masdar, an Emirian company, and the Moroccan company Green of Africa.

Initially, five consortia were selected by Masen in the first selection phase. This included, for example, the consortium formed by the Saudi company Acwa Power and the American company General Electric. Another team consisted of International Power, a subsidiary of the French group Engie, the Moroccan company Nareva Holding, the American SolarReserve LLC and the French Solaire Direct S.A.S.

The selected consortium is responsible for building a concentrated solar power plant in the Noor Midelt region. It is an installation in which solar radiation is concentrated at one point by mirrors and thus produces heat. The heat is used to generate steam, which drives a turbine to generate electricity. The Noor Midelt concentrated solar park will therefore produce 800 MW.
