Siemens Energy has entered into a contract with Nareva Holding for the supply of 44 wind turbines for the Haouma and Foum El Oued wind farms in Morocco. The company will supply and install a total of 100 MW for the two projects. Both wind farms are to go into operation in 2013 and will be maintained for a further five years by Siemens. "These two orders mark the entry of Siemens Wind Power into the African Wind Market", said Felix Ferlemann, CEO of the Wind Power Division at Siemens Energy.

The Haouma wind project will be realized in Northern Morocco, around 30 km east of Tangier and 6 km south of the Mediterranean coast. The 50 MW project will consist of 22 Siemens turbines of type SWT-2.3-93. The Foum El Oued wind farm will be in the district of Laâyoune, the windiest area of Morocco, 9 km south-east of the port of Laâyoune in southern Morocco. This is also a 50 MW project and will consist of 22 type SWT-2.3-101 Siemens turbines.

The Moroccan government has a target of achieving 20% electricity generation from sustainable energies by 2020. Wind energy is set to play a key role in this plan.
