Noor Ouarzazate is a solar power complex located 10 kilometers from Ouarzazate city. The production of the solar power station is 510 MW, Make in it the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant. The entire complex is planned to produce up to 582 MW. The total project’s estimated cost is around $2.5 B.
The solar power station is being developed with the help of the Spanish consortium TSK-Acciona-Sener and is the first in a series of planned developments at the Ouarzazate Solar Complex by the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN).
Water consumption for the Ouarzazate Noor complex is estimated at 2.5 to 3 million m3 per year for one wet- cooling project (Noor I) and two dry – cooling projects (Noor II and III), due to the need to clean the reflectors regularly.
