The Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (Masen) has extended the application deadline for the second phase of its 500 MW NOOR concentrated solar plant by three months to mid-September 2014.

Located near the south central city Quarzazate, the NOOR CSP Next Program consists of two separate projects:

  • a 200 MW CSP parabolic trough project (NOOR II); and
  • a 100 MW CSP tower project and (NOOR III).

Masen pre-selected consortia for the two projects in November last year. Abengoa SA and Abengoa Solar, ACWA Power International and Spanish solar company Sener are pre-qualifiers for NOOR II, while GDF Suez and Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) were invited to take part in the tender of NOOR III.
