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

China Energy Engineering Group Guangdong Power Engineering is the general contractor engaged in the construction of the new plant, which will operated by Attarat Power Company.

As part of the latest deal, Siemens will provide two SST5-5000 steam turbines, two air-cooled SGen5-1200A generators and the turbine control system for the facility.

Siemens Power and Gas Middle East and North Africa region sales head Jean Nasr said: “The efficient use of water is a decisive challenge for this project, and with our modern technology we'll provide the right equipment to achieve the highest electricity output and simultaneously save precious resources.

"Siemens will provide two SST5-5000 steam turbines, two air-cooled SGen5-1200A generators and the turbine control system for the facility."

“Along with our partner we will support the government's plan to provide a reliable power supply and make Jordan less reliant on imported electricity.”

The compact steam turbine generator SST5-5000 consists of one combined high- / intermediate pressure and one low pressure module.

The Siemens’ air cooled condensers, to be installed at the Attarat plant, will save up to 90% of the water required for the plant's operation compared to the use of a wet cooling system.

In order to withstand the high back pressure caused by the condensers, Siemens will provide low-pressure turbines.

The Attarat plant is expected to become operational by mid-2020 and will feed up to 470MW of energy to Jordan's power grid.

Once operational, the facility will be able to supply sufficient electricity to cover up to 15% of the country's annual power demand.

Currently, Jordan uses 14% of its power capacity for water treatment and distribution.
