Masdar Energy Announces Expansion to Morocco

Masdar Energy, an Emirati company renowned for its investments in renewable energies and sustainable technologies in the Middle East, is preparing to launch its first project in Morocco.

Centered on the treatment and recovery of plastic waste, this pioneering industrial project has a budget of over MAD 100 million and will generate over 200 direct and indirect jobs in the Rabat region.

Masdar Energy’s primary focus to date has been on green electricity generation, either independently or in collaboration with other operators in the field. Particularly, the Emirati company participated in the Noor Midelt Phase I project, in partnership with EDF Renewables and Moroccan company Green of Africa, with an overall installed capacity of 800 MW. 

This project was awarded to Masdar by the National Office of Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE) for its design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance.

Although the current project in Morocco is smaller in scale than Masdar’s original ambitions, it remains a milestone for the company in the Moroccan market and reflects the Kingdom’s growing interest in renewable energies and sustainability.

With its expertise and commitment to environmental protection, Masdar Energy aims to significantly contribute to Morocco’s ongoing efforts to reduce plastic waste and boost its renewable energy sector.

Founded in 2006, Masdar is an energy company based in Abu Dhabi, which plays a leading role in renewable energies and sustainable development worldwide. 

Masdar aims to maintain the UAE’s leadership in the energy sector while supporting the diversification of its economy and energy sources for future generations. The company develops large-scale renewable energy projects and fosters innovation in clean technologies, notably as a pioneer in green hydrogen. 

The company also provides industrial platforms and knowledge to stimulate the growth of renewable energies and clean technologies, subsequently creating new sources of long-term revenue.
