Jorf Lasfar, Morocco

A fast-growing country

The Jorf Lasfar power station, located 130 km south-west of Casablanca, currently provides 44% of Morocco's electricity needs.

The construction of two additional units, each delivering 350 MW or power, has strengthened the country's supply capacity, demand for which is growing at nearly 8% per year. The new installations will in fact take the total production capacity of the plant from 1,360 MW to 2,100 MW by 2014.

The contract includes construction of a 30 m high building with installation of a frame weighing 900 tonnes, as well as laying the foundations and building the mounts for an electrostatic burner, absorbers and two silos.

Morocco is currently the fifth-largest economic power in Africa.
