MASEN to reveal the winners of the first phase of the tender for the Quarzazate Project

MASEN's tender processes near completion- decision imminent and rumours on the next phases

Last month, MASEN announced that Egypt based Orascom Construction Industries had been excluded from the shortlist for the first phase of the tender for the 500 MW Ouarzazate project. With the industry having been on hold since the short list was announced in December 2010 the news was an exciting sign that the final decision processes are underway in selecting the first winner.

With the technical aspects of the bids having now been analysed, MASEN are in the process of closely scrutinising the financial criteria with an announcement expected towards the end of May. On 22 May, MASEN President, Mustapha Bakkoury and the MASEN board will lead the proceedings at the annual Solar Maghreb meeting held in Casablanca where many expect further details of the bids to be revealed.

They will be joined by representatives from the remaining consortia of bidders as well as those keenly awaiting the details of the next tendering processes. Whilst the details of next phases have yet to be publically announced, MASEN have indicated that it is likely to be CSP that will feature most prominently
