Ouarzazate Solar Power Station (OSPS), also called Noor Power Station is a solar power complex located in the Drâa-Tafilalet region in Morocco, 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) from Ouarzazate town, in Ghessat rural council area. At 510 MW, it is the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant. With an additional 72 MW photovoltaic system the entire project is planned to produce 582 MW at peak when finished and is being built in three phases and in four parts.
The plant will be able to store solar energy in the form of heated molten salt, allowing for production of electricity into the night. It stores energy for up to eight hours and will cover an area of 2,500 hectares (6,178 acres).
Noor I has an installed capacity of 160 MW. It is a parabolic trough type with a molten salt storage for 3 hours of low-light producing capacity. Noor II is the second phase of the Ouarzazate Solar Power Station. It is a 200 MW CSP solar plant using parabolic troughs. It has a 7 hours storage capacity. It commissioned in 2018. Noor III is the third part of the Ouarzazate Solar Power Station and commissioned in January 2019. It is a 150 MW gross CSP solar project using a solar power tower with 7 hours energy storage. Noor IV will be a 72 MW Photovoltaic power station
