One of the largest solar pumping projects in Morocco is underway
Launched in December of 2017 by Les Domaines Agricoles, the solar pumping project is a production line of date-palms located in their site of Errachidia and is now achieving commissioning. This plant is listed among the largest solar pumping projects of Morocco and its solar-energy capacity is up to about 400 MWh per year. Hence, the irrigation shall be run through a control system of water pumping, operating with solar energy and providing a minimum coverage up to 89% of the forecasted needs for the year round. The other big asset of this plant is the reduction of CO2 emissions by nearly 150 tons per year. Through this project, Les Domaines Agricoles do restate their firm will to be a proactive actor in the development process of the energy efficiency in Morocco.
