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

According to the contract, Siemens will supply two SGT-800 gas turbines, a SST-400 steam turbine, three 11kV generators and two heat recovery steam generators for the plant, which will have a fuel efficiency rating of 84%.

The SGT-800 industrial gas turbine, which combines a reliable robust design with high efficiency and low emissions, offers flexibility in fuels, operation conditions, maintenance concepts, package solutions and ratings to meet current and future market needs, Siemens claims.

Siemens Poland Power Generation Division head Grzegorz Nalezyty said the SGT-800 industrial gas turbine is very flexible with regard to fuel and together with the SST-400 steam turbine, it will generate clean electricity and district heat at the Gorzow power plant.

"In total, Siemens has sold more than 227 SGT-800 gas turbines to date, which together represents operational experience of more than 2.5 million hours," said Nalezyty.

"Siemens will supply two SGT-800 gas turbines, a SST-400 steam turbine, three 11kV generators and two heat recovery steam generators for the plant."

The scope of the contract also includes a 12-year long-term maintenance agreement for the main components at the plant, including gas turbines.

To be fuelled with nitrogen-rich natural gas, which has a lower calorific value than conventional forms, the Gorzow plant will have an electric capacity of 138MW and a thermal capacity of 90MW.

The new plant with district heat extraction will produce 95% less sulphur dioxide emissions, more than 30% less nitrogen dioxide emissions and more than 95% less particulate emissions.

In October 2013, PGE and PGNiG established a venture to develop the plant at PGE’s Gorzow CHP plant in the western part of the country.

PGNiG will supply natural gas from its domestic operations for the plant under a PLN3bn (€717.7m) power purchase agreement between the parties.
