POWERCHINA's Morocco Noor 150 mW Solar-Thermal Power Plant (Phase II and III), received two certificates from the Quarzazate government on Oct 22 for its outstanding contribution to society, as well as its assistance in developing the local economy and improving employment rates.

The project is being constructed by Shandong Electric Power Construction Co (SEPCO III), a subsidiary of POWERCHINA. It features the largest installed capacity for single solar parabolic towers.

Since the ground breaking, SEPCO III has always kept in mind POWERCHINA's corporate mission.

While meeting all the contract requirements, the construction team attached great importance to its relations with local government, institutions and communities. By fitting in with the local customs and habits, SEPCO III created a positive environment for the project's full implementation.

The company not only made considerable donations to local mosques, primary schools and welfare houses, but also took part in a series of holiday celebrations and other cultural activities.

As of now, SEPCO III has provided locals with over 6,000 job positions, where they can get professional training and pick up construction skills necessary for their re-employment.

The project is also playing a leading role in accelerating the area's industrial development and upgrading technology.
