The project is an investment programme aimed at reinforcing and extending the electricity transmission network of Morocco. The programme consists of 24 electricity transmission schemes overall encompassing the implementation of circa 850 km of overhead lines and 4 600 MVA of transformation capacity.
The main purpose of the project is to enable the integration into the grid of new generation resources, including renewable energy, extend the transformation capacity to the distribution grid and contribute to improve the reliability of supply.
Moroccan EIA legislation requires environmental and social impact assessments for the main project schemes in the programme. Such assessments need to be carried out in line with EIB guidelines, implying a follow-up during the implementation of the programme as and when individual EIAs become available.
The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in compliance with the Bank’s Guide to Procurement.
