Saudi Arabian power engineering firm Acwa Power and China’s Chint group have chosen EPC specialist Sterling and Wilson (S&W) to construct a 170MW solar PV facility in Morocco.

The Acwa and Chint consortium was selected last week by the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN) to develop the three PV plants that make up the NOOR PV I project in Ouarzazate.

Bikesh Ogra, S&W president, renewable and electrical, said: “These projects have been won after an intense competitive bidding process. Morocco has been one of our most important target markets and these projects would hopefully enable us to consolidate our positioning for all forthcoming opportunities in the country and the region as a whole.”
