NO.4-5-1


This page provides information on ISCC Morocco, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. Integrated Solar Combined-Cycle (ISCC) technology combines the benefits of solar energy with the benefits of a combined cycle. The solar resource partially substitutes the fossil fuel. The project consist of a 470 MWe hybrid power plant composed of a combined cycle and a 20 MWe solar thermal system.
