Morocco’s sustainable energy agency, Masen, announced a prequalification tender on Thursday. The tender seeks a private partner to finance, construct, and operate a 400-megawatt wind farm in northern Morocco, according to a press release.

Morocco’s new wind energy project, Nassim Nord, consists of two wind farms. The first, Nassim Koudia Al Baida Extension, is located in the Fahs-Anjra and M’diq-Fnideq provinces with a capacity of around 150 megawatts (MW).

The second, Nassim Dar Chaoui, is situated in the Tangier and Tetouan provinces and boasts a larger capacity of around 250 MW.

“Structured as a Project Finance initiative, this new Programme will encourage greater private sector involvement in renewable energy deployment with the participation of commercial banks, both Moroccan and international, in its financing,” said Masen in the statement.

The Nassim Nord wind farm tender requests that developers submit pre-qualification offers by June 24, according to the same source.

This tender is part of Morocco’s push to accelerate renewable energy deployment. It follows significant progress on solar projects totaling 1,900 MW, including the Noor Midelt I, Noor Midelt II, and Noor Midelt III, as well as Noor Atlas plants, and the completion of the Nassim Koudia Al Baida Wind Farm (100 MW).

Morocco’s sustainable energy agency noted that the projects, once completed, “will propel the Kingdom towards achieving its decarbonization goals by aiming to reach a renewable energy capacity of at least 52% of the total electrical capacity by 2030,” from 37.6% now.
