Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (Masen) has launched a pre-qualification tender for Phase 2 of the solar thermal and photovoltaic (PV) project Noor Midelt, with the deadline for submissions being 16 September, 2019.

According to a report by Construction Week’s sister title Utilities Middle East, the latest tender is the first step in the selection process of a private partner that will be in charge of design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance of the concentrated solar power plant with storage capacities.

Noor Midelt Phase 2 will generate 190MW of electricity during peak hours, with a capacity of up to 230MW.

The solar power plant will combine both photovoltaic and concentrated solar power technology.

In May 2019, Masen awarded a tender for the design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance of Morocco’s Noor Midelt Phase 1 multi-technologies solar power plant to a consortium comprising French renewable energy group EDF Renewables, Abu Dhabi’s Masdar, and Green of Africa.
