Beam me up!

The solar thermal power plant at Ouarzazate or Noor (in Arabic light) is located about 10 kilometers northeast of the city of Ouarzazate. When completed, the power plant will generate up to 580 megawatts of power. Three plants are currently connected to the grid, the fourth plant is planned. The tower is surrounded by an oval 650 hectare field with 7500 huge mirrors.

The tower is visible from afar by its imaginary glow and reminds one of SciFi movies. | Morocco
