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

The upgrade will enhance the plant’s production capacity from 780MW to approximately 1,200MW.

Siemens Gas and Power Asia/Pacific Region head Andreas Pistauer said: “We are proud to support Hiep Phuoc Power Co. Ltd to improve the electricity supply situation with an environmentally friendly power plant solution.

“At the same time, the extension to efficient combined cycle technology will diversify the plant’s operational functionality and thus increase the customer’s flexibility.”

Siemens will supply three SGT5-4000F gas turbines, three generators, three heat recovery steam generators, SPPA-T3000 control system and associated electrical equipment.

The upgraded plant will use re-gasified liquefied natural gas (LNG) instead of oil. The waste heat released by the gas turbines will be used to generate steam that will be used to drive the existing steam turbines and generators for producing electricity.

Siemens noted that the process can reduce carbon emissions by nearly 50% for each kilowatt-hour produced on-site.

Hiep Phuoc Power noted that it will be able to supply around 520MW to the grid by mid-2021 through open cycle operation to meet the electricity demand in Vietnam.

Re-commissioning of the upgraded plant is scheduled for the second half of 2022.

Siemens recently obtained another deal to provide its F class gas turbines. In September 2019 Canadian power generator TransAlta reached an agreement with Kineticor Holdings to purchase two 230MW Siemens F class gas turbines and associated equipment for a fee of $84m.

The Canadian company will be integrating the new gas turbines into the existing steam turbine at Sundance Unit 5, to repower and transform the unit into an efficient combined-cycle unit.
