GE will deliver turnkey substations to Moroccan grid on largest wind farm project

by Feb 10, 2021

GE won a contract from ONEE (Moroccan public authority) to supply two HV substations (400kV and 225kV) in the south of Morocco that will evacuate power from the 300 MW Boujdour wind farm and other renewable energy projects to neighboring communities, as well as connect it to the national grid of Morocco. It is expected to provide clean power to around 200,000 households across the country.

The Boujdour site is part of a far-ranging integrated wind power project, totaling some 850 MW on different sites, which is in turn part of Morocco’s ambitious renewable energy program, aiming to install about 10 GW of renewable additional capacity by 2030. This is more than 52% of the Moroccan installed capacity. Link to the news:
