The Tarfaya wind farm is located in southern Morocco, 20 km from the town of Tarfaya on the Atlantic coast, where it benefits from conducive conditions to wind power. With 131 wind turbines and a total capacity of 301 MW, it is the largest wind farm in Africa.
The park entered service in December 2014, after two years of work and 5 billion dirhams of investment. Its builder and operator is Tarec, which sells the power generated to the National Electricity Office.
This park will supply 15% of the 2 GW that Morocco has set itself in the wind segment of its large renewable plan, which aims to produce 52% of its electricity from green energies by 2020.
