Wind Wire: Morocco - Alstom to supply 102MW first phase

Nareva Holding, a subsidiary of the Moroccan industrial, financial and services conglomerate ONA, has selected the France-based energy multinational Alstom to supply 61 of its 1.67MW turbines to a project at Akhfenir, on the Atlantic coast 100 kilometres east of Tarfaya. Slated for completion in mid-2011, the plant is phase one of what will eventually be a 200MW facility, developed under the Moroccan government's EnergiPro initiative, which encourages industrial customers to produce their own renewable energy. Nareva is targeting more than 300MW of operating capacity in 2012. Spain's Gamesa currently dominates the Moroccan market, with 199MW turning, followed by Vestas with 50MW and Enercon with just 4MW.
