Dubai, UAE April 19th, 2022 – The Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (Masen) and the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development have officially announced that AMEA Power has been awarded two solar power plant projects of 36MW each, following an international tender.
The solar projects were part of a large international tender launched by Masen and the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development in February 2021 for the construction of the first phase of the Noor PV II program, a multi–site solar energy program with a total capacity of 330MW. Such program intends to supply green and competitive electricity to large industrial companies established in Morocco under the 13–09 legal framework.
