Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN) is undertaking the development of Integrated Solar Energy Generation program in Morocco.
The project involves the construction and operation of five solar power plants on a 10,000ha area. The combined power generation capacity of the five plants is 2,080MW.
The five solar power plants will be located in Ouarzazate, Noor Midelt, Boujdour, Sebkhate Tah, and Foum Al Ouad. The first plant at Ouarzazate will be developed based on CSP parabolic trough technologies.
The Ouarzazate solar power plant is being developed in two phases with a capacity of 580MW. The first phase (Noor I) of the Ouarzazate solar power plant project involves the construction a 160 MW Concentrated Solar power plant with three hour thermal power storage.
In January 2011, 19 consortiums were submitted bids for Noor 1 project, in which four were pre-qualified.
In June 2011, Soitec and Schneider Electric signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Masen on integrated partnership on CPV technology in Morocco.
In July 2011, Ministry of Industry and Energy, France announced to allocate US$146 million to help finance Moroccos solar energy plan. The funds would be disbursed by the French Development Agency for the Ain Beni Mathar power plant.

On January 9, 2015, the ACWA Power led consortium with Sener Grupo De Ingeneria SA won the BOOT contract for the second phase NOOR II and NOOR III of the project. ACWA power will be responsible for the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance of the power plant, while Sener provide solar technology (design, supply of components, engineering, construction and commissioning of equipment). ACWA power has offered an electricity price of US$1.47 per kilowatt-hour.
In May 2015, the EPC contract for Noor II and Noor III was awarded to Sener and Sepco III.
On May 27, 2015, the Noor II and Noor II projects completed the financial closure. The project will be financed with a debt/equity ratio of 80/20.
