“The award will be for two separate contracts for each of the two Noor Midelt Phase 1 plants,” said Obaid Amrane. This means that it is possible for two groups to be selected for the development of the project. Construction work will start in early 2019. It should be remembered that the international competitive bidding process started almost three years ago, with a call for expressions of interest launched at the end of 2015. followed by the bidders’ call for pre-qualification in July 2016. One year later, in June 2017, five consortiums, led by world leaders in renewable energies, were prequalified by Masen for the development of this project which will include two hybrid technology plants, combining CSP (thermosolar) and PV (photovoltaic) . Of these 5 groups, only 3 remain in the running, confirms Obaid Amrane.


These consortiums are led by Saudi Acwa Power, French Engie and fellow EDF Énergies Nouvelles. Note that the Engie group includes the Moroccan Nareva Holding. The one led by EDF Énergies Nouvelles is itself made up of Morocco‘s Green of Africa (an alliance between FinanceCom, Akwa and Sofinam).


“The award will be for two separate contracts for each of the two Noor Midelt Phase 1 plants,” Regarding the proposed financial package, and as we announced in exclusivity last February,


the German bank KfW will bring the largest, or $ 852 million.
