GE Renewable Energy will supply turbines for the 87-MW Taza wind farm which is currently being built in Morocco by EDF Renewables and Japanese trader Mitsui & Co (TYO:8031).
The renewables arm of General Electric Co (NYSE:GE) announced today it has been selected to deliver 27 units of its 3.2MW-85 turbines for the project near Taza. Construction work commenced at the site just recently and the wind park is expected to be completed in early 2022 with the capacity to produce enough power to cover the annual consumption of 350,000 homes.
The Taza wind project is supported by a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the National Office of Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE) and the Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (MASEN).
GE noted that this project is part of Morocco’s energy strategy, including an objective to produce 52% of the country’s power from renewable sources by 2030.
