Sterling and Wilson Pvt. Ltd. have signed an agreement to construct a 170MW PV facility, with a consortium led by ACWA Power in the Kingdom of Morocco.
The agreement was signed during a ceremony at COP22 in Marrakech. Construction on NOOR PV I will begin shortly and is estimated to take 12 months to complete. The NOOR PV I Program will consist of three projects: NOOR Ouarzazate IV, with a capacity of around 70MW, NOOR Laayoune, 80MW and NOOR Boujdour, 20MW.
Sterling and Wilson has been selected as the EPC contractor for the PV plants in North Africa. Once completed, the plant is expected to be operational for 20 years.
"These projects have been won after an intense competitive bidding process," said Bikesh Ogra, President – Renewable and Electrical.
