Project Overview


Located in Ouarzazate Morocco, NOOR Ouarzazate (NOORo) is one of the biggest solar energy complex in the world. Consisting of four phases, NOORo project is part of Moroccan Renewable Energy Plan, which aims to 42% of RE installed capacity in national energy mix in 2020, and 52% in 2030 in Morocco. The NOORo I, II and III are CSP projects, with total capacity of 510MW, and the fourth NOORo IV is a 72MW PV project.


NOORo I is a 160MW Trough CSP plant, with 3 hours' storage system. The annual electricity production is expected to be 500GWh, and annual CO2 reduction 140,000 tons.
