Garrad Hassan Represents Morocco State Utility in RFP for 300MW Tarfaya Wind Project

Garrad Hassan and Partners (GH) in Bristol, UK is acting as the Technical Advisor to the Morocco state-owned utility Office National de l'Electricité (ONE) in support of an RFP for a 300 MW wind farm to be developed near Tarfaya on the Atlantic coast in Southern Morroco.
The RFP was issued on February 14, 2008. At the completion of the project, the farm will be contracted under a 20-year power purchase agreement with ONE. The GH team is led by CEO Dr Andrew Garrad assisted by Jean-Pierre Callens and Khaled Klabi of GH France in Paris, as well Lyndon Greedy from Bristol.

Andrew Garrad commented “The demand for electricity is increasing rapidly in Morocco and a target of 1000 MW of wind power by 2012 has been set by the Moroccan government. This RFP is a major step in a new country, indeed a new continent, for wind power. Morocco has three key ingredients: excellent wind, lots of space and a real need for additional generation. GH is very excited to be involved in a central role in the development of this market leading project.”

HSBC is acting as financial advisor and Chadbourne and Parke as legal adviser, with the respective teams being led by Yusuf Macun and Robin Mizrahi.
