Cement company Lafarge Maroc has again chosen Spain's Gamesa to supply and install the turbines for the third extension to its Tetouan wind power plant. The six 2 MW machines should be commissioned by the middle of the year, taking the plant to 32.2 MW. Lafarge has also contracted Gamesa to operate and maintain the turbines to 2012. The previous extension, consisting of five Gamesa 2 MW turbines, came on line in December. Both phases were developed under the EnergiePro initiative, which encourages major industrial consumers to invest in up to 50 MW of renewable energy generation. This latest order cements Gamesa's place as Morocco's leading turbine supplier. The company has supplied 80.2 MW of Morocco's 134 MW of installed wind capacity and has agreements for 152 MW.
