The Tarfaya wind farm, the Noor solar plant complex in Ourzazate and the Wessal Casablanca-Port project succeeded it to the list of the most significant proposals that marked Africa’s economy this 2015.

One of Morocco’s most determined and motivated projects regarding green energy or renewable energy is the Tarfaya wind farm situated in the nation’s southern coastline.

Comprising of 131 wind turbines with a capacity of 300 megawatts, Tarfaya wind farm is the second biggest park in Africa. The project value is around €450 million.

On the other hand, regarded as the biggest concentrated solar power plant in the world, the Noor is anticipated to create adequate energy for above one million Moroccans, with perhaps extra power to export to Europe.

The solar plant will be administered by the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN), enclosing an area of above 450 hectares. The first phase of ‘Noor I project value is around € 600 million.

The Ouarzazate project has brought in Morocco the title of “solar superpower” as it is approximated to create approximately 160 megawatts attaining 2,000 megawatts by 2020.

Meanwhile, the Wessal Casablanca-Port project started in 2010 as a restoration plan to endorse tourism in Casablanca.
The second phase of the project was kicked off by Morocco’s King last March, with an approximate value of €28 million. It made a cultural tourism circuit of 3.7 km between the old city and the Hassan II Mosque.

Wessal Casablanca-Port is part of the refurbishment program of the old medina, which involves the structuring of a naval shipyard, the construction of a fishing port and the development of a cruise terminal.
