AMEA Power Wins Contract For Two Solar Plants in Morocco (News Central TV)

AMEA Power, located in Dubai, has been awarded a contract to construct two solar power facilities in Morocco, as the North African country continues to diversify its renewable energy portfolio.

The solar installations are part of a huge international tender organized by Masen and the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development in Morocco.

The company is planning to build the first phase of the Noor PV II multi-site solar energy project, which will have a total capacity of 330 megawatts.

AMEA Power will develop two solar facilities with a combined capacity of 36 megawatts in Taroudant, in the Souss-Massa region, and El Hajeb, in the Fes-Meknes area, as part of the deal.

“The Noor PV II programme supports Morocco’s target to increase its renewables share to 52 per cent by 2030.

“We look forward to supporting the country in achieving its objective and diversifying its energy mix,” said AMEA Power’s chairman Hussain Al Nowais.

The new contract is being awarded as countries around the world continue to focus on developing new renewable energy plants in order to reduce emissions.

According to a research by the International Renewable Energy Agency, global renewable power capacity increased by 9% to 3,064 gigawatts in 2021 as a result of the green transition effort.

Morocco aspires to attract $30 billion in investment in its energy industry by 2030, with plans to install 10 gigawatts of renewable capacity and build a liquefied natural gas facility to meet the country’s expanding electricity demands.
