Danish Vestas Will Supply Turbines to Wind Farm in Northern Morocco
The Danish wind energy giant announced that it had signed a firm and unconditional order with ACWA Power for 40 of its V90-3.0 MW wind turbines.
The contract comprises the supply of the turbines and a 20-year active output management 4000 service agreement to guarantee the optimal performance of the wind park.
Located in Jbel Sendouq-Khalladi, 15 KM east of Tangier near Renault factory, the new wind farm is developed under Morocco’s renewable energy law. Once operational, the project will directly supply the industrial clients connected to the high voltage network. The project is expected to cut greenhouse gas emissions by more than 200,000 tons of CO2 annually.
By 2020, Morocco is hoping to source half of its energy from renewables, a third of that will be solar power; the other two thirds will come from wind and hydro power.
