GE Renewable Energy has been selected by EDF RE and Mitsui & Co. to supply equipment for the 87 MW Taza onshore wind farm.
Twenty-seven onshore wind turbines from GE’s 3.2-85 will be installed near Taza, in northern Morocco. The project is part of Morocco’s energy policy, which aims to produce 52 per cent of its installed electricity from renewable energy by 2030.
At the beginning of 2022 the Taza project is scheduled to launch operations, supplying the equivalent of 350,000 homes and saving up to 200,000 tons of CO2.
This project adds to the construction of the 200 MW GE Renewable Energy at the Akhfenir wind farm in Morocco which has been in operation since 2014.
“Morocco, which has a great potential for wind energy and has been an early mover in the journey toward renewable energy integration, has achieved great progress toward its renewable energy targets. We are thrilled to be partnering with EDF and Mitsui & Co., Ltd and to reinforce our position in the country.“Manar al-Moneef, GE Renewable Energy’s onshore wind regional leader for MENAT.
