GE has announced it will supply 56 1.7-100 wind turbines for a wind farm in Morocco. Energie Eolienne du Maroc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nareva Holding, is developing the 100 MW project.
The companies say the agreement complements the government of Morocco's Integrated Wind Energy Project, which aims to generate 2 GW of wind power by 2020.
‘Morocco is taking significant strides in achieving the Integrated Wind Energy Strategy to increase wind's portion of the national energy mix to over 14 percent by 2020," says Ahmed Nakkouch, CEO of Nareva Holding. "Additionally, this farm will help by adding renewable power to the grid and help meet the country's growing demand for power. GE's wind turbines have proven performance and reliability, adding further value to the project."
