Deadline postponed for Moroccan wind farm

14 August 2008
State utility Office National de l’Electricite is extending the bid deadline for the Tarfaya wind farm project to 15 December.

The original deadline was 15 October.

According to a source close to the project, the deadline was postponed to give potential bidders time to collect better wind data.

In August 2007, 16 companies were prequalified for the scheme (MEED 09:08:08).

The $500m project covers the development, financing, design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and operation and maintenance of the 200MW farm. The capacity could be extended to 300MW.

The UK's Garrad Hassan and Partners is the technical advisor, Chadourne & Parke of the US is the international legal adviser, while a team of Naciri & Associes and Gide Loyrette Nouel is the local legal adviser. HSBC and BMCE Capital are the financial advisers (MEED 21:2:08).
