Morocco Launches Pre-Qual Bid Process for 400MW Wind Power Projects

Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (MASEN), has launched the pre-qualification process for the selection of a private company to support the implementation of a two-part, 400 MW Nassim Nord wind power programme.

The proposal involves the construction of two wind farms.

Developers interested in building the two wind farms have until June 24, 2024 to apply.

Named Nassim Dar Chaoui, the larger wind farm (planned to be a 250MW capacity) will be located between the provinces of Tangier and Tetouan, in the north of the country. The second is a 150MW project, which will extend the existing Nassim Koudia Al Baida wind farm, already injecting 100 MW of clean electricity into Morocco’s national grid.

The company selected at the end of the tender process will be responsible for the development, financing, construction and operation of the two wind farms. “By structuring it as a project financing scheme, this new programme will encourage greater involvement of the private sector in the deployment of renewable energies, with the participation of Moroccan and international commercial banks in its financing”, says MASEN.
