The Moroccan National Power and Drinking Water Office (ONEE) has selected Abengoa for a new electricity transmission project worth US$28.5 million.

The project will enable part of the country’s energy demands to be supplied in an efficient and sustainable way besides improving the interconnection with Algeria.

Abengoa, a leader in this sector around the world, will be responsible for the engineering, design, maintenance and commissioning of the 210km power transmission line which is expected to commence its operations in 2016.

Abengoa is undertaking more than 30,000km of similar electricity transmission projects and is also developing electricity transport infrastructures; they hope to expand its experience of transmission lines and consolidate its position through this new project.

The electricity transmission project involves three 400Kv sections: Matmata-Msoun, Msoun-Gteter and Bourdim-Jerada, which are 80km, 80km and 50km respectively in the north of Morocco. The project will see Moroccan power grid being hooked with the Algerian power network.
