Spain’s TSK to start works in Noor Midelt 1 in automn 2019
The consortium composed of French EDF Renewables, UAE’s Masdar and Morocco’s Green of Africa said that the plant will be operational by 2022.
Noor Midelt 1, worth $780 million, will employ both CSP and Photovoltaic (PV) technologies and will help reduce the cost of energy in the region as well as act as an incentive to develop infrastructure in the mountainous region.
“The plant will be the first built by TSK integrating two technologies in a hybrid system,” the Spanish company highlighted in a statement.
With such a large-scale project, MASEN is on track to meet the goal of generating more than 52% of Morocco’s electricity consumption from renewable sources by 2030.
