Morocco’s state renewable energy agency Masen has pre-qualified five consortia to build a hybrid solar power plant near Midelt in central Morocco, which will combine both photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies.
The Nour Midelt Phase 1 will be the first to be built at a site 20km northeast of Midelt, where Masen is looking to install around 1GW of PV and CSP capacity in two phases, each developed as independent power producer (IPP) projects under 25-year power purchase agreements.
The bidding groups for phase one are led by Acwa Power, EDF, Engie, Innogy and JPC (see table 3). The bidding groups have been requested to submit proposals for a project comprising two 150-190MW CSP units with five hours of thermal energy storage, each integrated with a PV unit for which the capacity is left to the bidders’ discretion.
