THERMAL POWER PLANT
Important need in electricity
Located 130 km south-west of Casablanca, the Jorf Lasfar power plant currently supplies 44% of Morocco’s electricity needs. The two additional units constructed on this site, each with an output of 350 MW, have boosted the country’s supply capacity, demand for which is growing at almost 8% annually. They increased the plant’s overall production capacity from 1,360 MW to 2,100 MW in 2014. The contract included the construction of a 30-m high building with a 900-T frame, as well as foundations and the construction of the units for an electrostatic burner, absorbers and two silos.
Jorf Lasfar is what is known as a “clean coal” power plant, meaning that it uses techniques and technologies aimed at improving energy efficiency and reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
