Case Highlights
Morocco NOORI 177MW Solar Plant, consisting of three solar parks (NOOR Laayoune, NOOR Boujdour and NOOR Ouarzazate IV), aimed to develop a combined solar capacity of 2GW by 2020 to meet the growing energy demand of Morocco. As Morocco’s first major solar project, NOORI 177MW Solar Plant will produce clean energy for nearly 30,000 househods every year. Noor Laayoune 85MW Solar Park spreads over an area of 240 hectares with 264,080 ASTRO modules. Noor Boujdour 20MW Solar Park covers an area of 60 hectares with 60,940 ASTRO modules. Noor Ouarzazate IV 72MW Solar Park is part of Noor Ouarzazate Solar Power Station (The world's largest concentrated solar power plant).
