Morocco has switched on what will be the world's largest concentrated solar power plant. The new site near the city of Ouarzazate -- famous as a filming location for Hollywood blockbusters like "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Gladiator" -- could produce enough energy to power over one million homes by [...]
Morocco expects to announce the results of prequalification for Noor Midelt CSP projects in the coming weeks and will launch the tender by the start of next year, Mustapha Bakkoury, president of the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (Masen) told Reuters November 14. The Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN) [...]
Morocco to tender for 800 MW concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) technologies by start of 2017
Morocco plans to launch tenders for the construction of two solar plants with a combined capacity of up to 800 megawatts (MW) by the start of 2017, the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (Masen) said. The agency invited pre-qualification bids from investors last month for the construction and operation of [...]
Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN) has launched a new international tender for a large-scale solar power project, confirming the North African country’s resolve to become a green-power leader. The project will have a total installed capacity of 400 MW and will include systems based on solar photovoltaic as well [...]
With targeted capacity of up to 550 MW, the Ouarzazate site will be the largest solar complex in the world. The second power plant in the complex will be built during this phase of the project. It will be a 150 to 200 MW CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) parabolic trough [...]
These agreements concern MASEN’s strategic acquisition of 50%, alongside Alcen group, in the Alsolen company, which is active in solar thermal technology.
Morocco’s ambitious Noor-Quarzazate Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project has received financial backing from the European Union.

PPAs will represent one of the lowest Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) tariffs worldwide
The Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy, MASEN, will attend the most important event for the Concentrated Solar Power industry, CSP Today Sevilla 2014.
Morocco is looking to speed up tender processes for the development of its 2,000 MW solar energy plan, starting with the first contract for 160 MW to be generated using concentrated solar thermal power (CSP).
Morocco plans to speed up tender processes for the development of a 2,000-megawatt solar energy plan, starting with the first contract for 160 megawatts to be generated using concentrated solar thermal power technology.
The solar thermal station will utilize concentrating solar power (CSP) technology, arraying parabolic trough mirrors around a central tower filled with fluid material, to generate 160MW in the first phase.
Morocco is looking to increase its production of solar energy to 2,000 megawatts by 2020, a giant leap considering that the most being produced at the moment is 900 megawatts in Spain and the United States.
