In a joint venture with French partner Sofregaz, Ramboll will develop an integrated gas-to-power project for Morocco’s state power and water utility ONEE.

Ramboll and Sofregaz will be the technical advisor on the project, which will enable Morocco to secure and provide affordable energy supply while taking the next steps towards carbon-reduced energy supply.

Scope of work

The intention is to connect natural gas pipelines to the combined cycle power plants and eventually the natural gas underground storage facilities. A high-pressure gas pipeline will be built to connect the 5bn m³/yr onshore LNG regasification in the receiving terminal through to the existing Maghreb-Europe high-pressure gas pipeline. Under the planned project, Morocco intends to set up 2400 MW capacity in 2 x 1.2 GW of gas fired combined-cycle gas turbine power plants (CCGT).

The project is expected to be ordered as a single BOOT contract.

Diversifying the energy mix

Today, Morocco depends on fossil fuel imports to generate over 97% of its energy.

The gas-to-power project is part of a programme by ONEE to add 6 GW of flexible, largely gas-fired, power generation capacity, 4 GW of interconnectors with neighbouring countries, and 2 GW of pumped hydro, all by 2030. The planned LNG infrastructure and gas-fired power plants will enable Morocco to manage intermittency as it expands renewable capacity to over half of the installed mix in 2030
