There are currently two wind farms operating: Koudia al Baida (50.4 MW of Vestas turbines) and the adjacent 3.5 MW Parc Eolien Modèle of Enercon 500 kW turbines owned by the national utility, ONE, also installed in 2000.
The bidding process for a third wind farm (Tangiers, 140 MW) has been narrowed down to two consortia: The Spanish led Union Fenosa/Izar/ EYRA/Bonus against the French-British consortium of Enercorp/
Somepi Group/Vestas/Renewable Energy Systems. The bidding process for another wind farm, Tarfaya (60 MW), is currently stalled (Windpower Monthly, June 2002). A call for tenders for the Essaouira wind farm (60 MW) is expected to be issued this year.
