ACWA Power Prepares to Run 2 Concentrated Solar Power Plants in Moroccan Ouarzazate

2018.06.04     From: helioscsp

ACWA Power Group is putting the finishing touches on the second and fourth stations of the giant Noor Ouarzazate Solar Power Complex before they are officially run in the coming days.


When these two plants become officially operational, ACWA Power will have completed 74 percent of the world’s largest solar park.


As part of the celebrations of the completion of the two new stations, a visit to the Noor Ouarzazate site will be organized for the participants of the Regional Solar Forum in North Africa and the Middle East.


CSP Focus MENA 2018 will be held in Marrakech from June 26 to 28 with the participation of figures from the Arab region, Europe, United States and Asia.


The Ouarzazate complex is set to develop into a 500MW solar park that incorporates several utility-scale solar power plants using various solar technologies.



Phase one of the project involved the construction of a 160MW concentrated solar power (CSP) plant named Noor I in 2015, while phase two involves the construction of the 200MW Noor II CSP plant and the 150MW Noor III CSP plant. Phase three will involve the construction of the Noor IV CSP plant.


Phase one construction works started in August 2013 and Noor I was officially commissioned in February 2016.


The project is being developed on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) basis by ACWA Power Ouarzazate, a consortium of ACWA Power, the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (Masen), Aries and TSK.


Morocco has launched a series of large projects in different parts of the country, which rely on the exploitation of solar and wind energy in the production of electricity.
