The Tangier park was developed in two zones: the first (Dhar Saadane) is km southeast of Tangier and the second 12 km east of the city for a total power of 140 MW.
ONEE is still looking for an industrial partner for the Tangier-Dhar Saadane wind farm commissioned in 2009. This strategic site, made up of 126 wind turbines for an installed capacity of 107.1 MW, is once again open to competition in the within the framework of a call for tenders relating to the operation and maintenance of the park for a period of three years.
The National Office for Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE) is still looking for a partner for the Tangier I wind farm. Built on the ridges of the Dhar Saadane area (22 km south-east of Tangier ), this site is again open to competition within the framework of a call for tenders relating to the operation and maintenance of the park for a period of three years. Tanger I was commissioned in 2009, as the largest wind farm in Africa and one of the first achievements that materializes the Moroccan plan for the development of renewable energy production capacities. It was developed in two zones: the first, located in Dhar Saadane, is made up of 126 wind turbines, while the second zone, located 12 km east of Tangier, includes 39 wind turbines for a total power of 140 megawatts ( MW) and a cost of 2.75 billion DH (250 million euros). For its operationalization, the operation of the park was entirely ensured by ONEE, while the heavy maintenance of the wind turbines was attributed to the Spanish manufacturer Gamesa.
Today, the Office is looking for an operator for the Dhar Saâdane site, the installed power of which amounts to 107.1 MW, ie a unit capacity of 850 KW for the 126 wind turbines. The operation and maintenance contract will commit the future partner to perform a set of services. In particular, this will involve monitoring and operating all the wind turbines and the internal high-voltage electrical network (which provides the connection between the park and the evacuation station) in order to optimize the operating conditions of the wind turbines. The contract also includes the Skills Transfer component. Periodic on-site training will be scheduled for ONEE staff to impart knowledge on the operation, maintenance and repair of equipment.
