Morocco In 350MW Solar Awards As Part Of Diversity Plan

The Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (Masen) has awarded two solar power projects with a combined capacity of 350MW to a consortium of Saudi firm ACWA Power and Spain’s Sener. The Noor 2 and Noor 3 projects will be built alongside the 160MW Noor 1 concentrated solar power (CSP) plant, currently under construction by ACWA and Sener at Ouarzazate (see map).
