Delve into the renewable energy prospects for Morocco

In its new low greenhouse gas (GHG) emission strategy to 2050, submitted to the United Nations (UN), the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development (MEM) of Morocco suggested to raise the share of renewable capacity in the country’s total power installed capacity mix to 80%.   Morocco currently aims to increase the share of renewables in total power capacity to 52% by 2030. The new strategy plans to increase the share of renewable capacity to 70% by 2040 and 80% by 2050.  GlobalData’s expert analysis delves into the current state and potential growth of the renewable energy market in Morocco. We cover: 
  • The 2020 target compared to what was achieved 
  • The 2030 target and current progress 
  • Energy strategy to 2050 
  • Green hydrogen 
  • Predictions for the way forward

Also known as T4, the new facility is located adjacent to the Malakoff’s existing 2,100MW coal-fired Tanjung Bin power plant (TBPP).

A global consortium comprising GE, Mudajaya and Shin Eversendai has developed T4, under a contract worth more than €1bn.

The ultra-supercritical, coal-fired power plant uses GE’s steam turbine and generator technology, ultra-supercritical boiler and environmental control systems to generate electricity required for two million people.

Malakoff acting CEO Habib Husin said: “GE’s highly efficient technology solution implemented at our T4 plant is helping us to ensure the generation of affordable electricity at lower environmental impact.”

“Each additional percentage point in efficiency reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 2% to 3%.”

The power plant’s emissions have significantly reduced through the use of low NOx burners, an efficient seawater flue gas desulphurisation facility and fabric filters to lower nitrous oxide, sulphur oxide and dust emissions.

GE Steam Power Systems CEO Andreas Lusch said: “Ultra-supercritical technology has achieved efficiencies up to 47% above the global average rate of existing power plants of around 30%, lowering fuel consumption and emissions. Each additional percentage point in efficiency reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 2% to 3%.”

Following synchronisation to the National Grid in October last year, the power plant has completed all tests required for safe and reliable energy generation.

Power generated from the facility will be sold to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), under a 25-year power purchase agreement.

A coal supply and transportation agreement was also signed between TBE and TNB Fuel Services to ensure the steady coal supply for use by the power plant to generate power.
