The first 800MW phase was awarded to a consortium of France's EDF, Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (MASDAR), and Green of Africa in May. Initial plans were for the first phase to consist of two separate hybridised CSP and PV plants. The CSP component of each project was planned to be around 150-190MW and the PV component 150-210MW, making a maximum of 400MW for each plant. A similar structure was contemplated for the second phase but this appears to have been rejected in favour of a single plant.
The second phase preferred bidder will design, finance, build, operate and maintain the plant, which will be constructed roughly 20 km north of Midelt on plains around the Moulouya River.
The project company will also sign a 25-year PPA with MASEN and will be owned by a lead member, expected to hold at least 35 pct , as well as a technical member holding 5 pct. MASEN will likely take a 25 pct stake in both the project company and the operations and maintenance company. The second phase is expected to be built on a turnkey basis through a lump sum fixed-price engineering, procurement and construction contract.
MASEN notes the Noor-Ouarzazate I solar project achieved 32 pct industrial integration, while Noor Ouarzazate II and III both reached 35 pct.

Albioma, which is established in Overseas France, Mauritius and Brazil, has worked for 20 years with the sugar industry to produce renewable energy from sugarcane bagasse. (Source: Albioma, PR, 26 Sept., 2018) Contact: Albioma, Charlotte Neuvy, +33 (0) 47 76 67 00, www.albioma.com

"With science still under attack and the climate threat growing, we're launching our own damn satellite. This groundbreaking initiative will help governments, businesses and landowners pinpoint -- and stop -- destructive emissions with unprecedented precision, on a scale that's never been done before," the Governor proclaimed.
Planet, which was founded by ex-NASA scientists in 2010, has in the last two years launched more than 150 Earth-imaging satellites, manufactured in San Francisco, helping customers in agriculture, government, mapping, NGOs and in other markets to make better decisions. The company's aerospace and data processing infrastructure, innovative technology and engineering and scientific expertise will be utilized to develop and operate the new satellite, with the possibility of launching additional satellites in the future as part of this initiative.
The State of California, through the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is developing and refining the technology needed to make this initiative possible. Planet will manage the mission operations and collaborate with the State and others on funding this groundbreaking effort. The State and Planet will make the collected environmentally-related satellite data available to the public and will work in partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and others with complementary projects. the new Climate Data Partnership will serve as a common platform for reporting climate variables and the earth's atmosphere.
Initial project funding has been provided by Dee and Richard Lawrence and OIF, as well as The Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham Environmental Trust.
