The Norwegian business will work with Morocco’s renewable energy company Jet Energy to install solar panels at four of Zalar Holding’s plants. It is the first time the Norwegian company has invested into a project in the North African country.

The total investment in the four solar plants is estimated to reach $2 million (MAD 19 million) and is expected to generate around 3,800 MWh of energy per year for a period of 16 years. The solar panels are being installed in a bid to reduce Zalar’s CO2 emissions to around 3,000 tonnes a year.

The solar panels will be installed on the roof of Zalar’s plants in ELDIN Had Soualem, Agro Industrielle Al Atlas Tit Mellil, Banchereau Maroc Mediouna, and Al Alf Fes, according to a press release.

Empower CEO Terje Osmunden said that the project is expected to create 100 jobs.
