PLANET SOLAR IN BOUREGREG MARINA

This unique and innovative project is an excellent illustration of Switzerland’s contribution to environmental protection and sustainable development, on the one hand, and the interest of the Kingdom of Morocco in general and the Bouregreg project in particular, since its launch in January 2006, to the environment component through all the actions of protection and safeguard of the environment.
