GE Renewable Energy has announced that it has been selected by EDF RE and Mitsui & Co to supply equipment for the 87 MW Taza onshore wind farm in Morocco. GE will install 27 of its 3.2-85 onshore wind turbines near Taza in the north of Morocco.
The project is part of the energy strategy of Morocco, which has a goal of producing 52 per cent of its installed electric power from renewable energies by 2030. The Taza project is scheduled to start operations at the start of 2022.
Manar al-Moneef, GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind regional leader for MENAT, said: “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, and to reinforce our position in the country.”
