After launching its first stage in February 2016, the remaining three phases of the complex will become operational by October, said Mustapha Bakkoury, managing director of the agency at a working session on the country’s renewable energy.


The second and the fourth phase of the complex will start service as of May, while the third stage will be launched in October, Bakkoury said.


Morocco 580 MW Ouarzazate Solar Power Station (3 CSP + 1 PV)

  • NOORo I, 160 MW parabolic trough CSP, completed in February 2016

  • NOORo II, 200 MW parabolic trough CSP, to be completed in May 2018

  • NOORo III, 150MW power tower CSP, to be completed in October 2018

  • NOORo IV, 70 MW PV, to be completed in May 2018



Deep discussions on Morocco’s CSP market and Noor CSP complex will be among the key topics during the upcoming CSP Focus MENA 2018 event in Marrakech, Morocco during June 27-28, which will be the can’t missing gathering for CSP industry players watching Middle East & North Africa region.

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.
