After the assessment of the prequalification documents filed by the 19 candidates for the production program (IPP - Independent Power Producer) for the design, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of the first phase of the Ouarzazate Program (500 MW), the alphabetical list of qualified candidates is as follows:

  • Abeinsa ICI, Abengoa Solar, Mitsui and Abu Dhabi NEC ;
  • ENEL and ACS SCE ;
  • International Company for Water and Power (ACWA), Aries IS and TSK EE;
  • Orascom CI, Solar Millenium and Evonik Steag.

 

 

 

The first phase of this solar power compound will be devoted to cylinder-parabolic solar concentration collection technologies, with TSK leading the development of engineering and construction as an EPC.

It is important to highlight the list of candidates for prequalification, with international companies such as General Electric, Cegelec, Eiffage, Alstom Power, Siemens, Litwin, SNC Lavalin or Mitsubishi. TSK, with 4 thermal solar power plants under construction at present, is among these companies which can give us an idea on the technological level we have achieved, positioning ourselves as an international market leader.
