GE wins 95MW Moroccan contract
GE is to supply the turbines for a 95.2MW wind project in Morocco, after it was handed the contract by developer Energie Eolienne du Maroc (EEM). The US manufacturer will install 56 of its 1.7-100 turbines on the development near Akhfennir in southern Morocco. This is GE's first wind turbine supply contract in Morocco. GE said that the power generated by the project will be bought under a power purchase agreement specifically intended to support industrial companies. Energie Eolienne du Maroc is a developer of wind projects and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Moroccan firm Nareva Holding.
