Vinci secures Morocco pumped-storage scheme

Vinci Construction Grands Projets has been appointed to deliver turn-key work for the Abdelmoumen pumped storage hydroelectric plant in Morocco.

Work on the new £250M facility, located 70km from Agadir, will include earthworks for two new reservoirs, embedding the powerhouse within a natural slope and construction of 3km of new pipework, including 1km underground.

The 350MW hydroelectric power station will use the natural topography to generate power with a 550m height difference between the two reservoirs.

Construction is expected to take four years to complete.
