A. 5) Mutually agreed assessment procedures:

Describe the procedures, including name of organisations involved a):

The applicable assessment procedures are currently being defined, on the basis of the guidelines set forth in the ''International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol''.

A substantial contribution in this respect is expected to result from specific programmes of transfer of technology and know how in the frame of the " Cooperation for Development" to be funded by the competent Italian Governmental Authorities. Contacts between the Moroccan Ministry of Environment and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs are being developed.

The envisaged supervisory and controlling Authority shall be the ''Secretariat d'Etat chargé de l'Environnement ''

a) Please ensure that detailed contact information for all organizations mentioned is reported under

section A.2 above.

B. Governmental acceptance, approval or endorsement

Bearing in mind that all activities implemented jointly under this pilot phase require prior acceptance, approval or endorsement by the Governments of the Parties participating in these activities, which shall be shown as follows:

(a) In the case of joint reporting, the report is submitted by the designated national authority of one participating Party with the concurrence of all other participating Parties as evidenced by attached letters issued by the relevant national authorities;

(b) In the case of separate reporting, the reports are submitted separately by the designated national authority of each and every participating Party. Information will only be compiled once reports have been received from all participating Parties.

B. 1) For the activity:

  • * First report and joint reporting: please add copies of letters of endorsement by each designated national authority of Parties involved in the activity.

(the covering letter of this Uniform Reporting Format represents such

endorsement)

  • * Subsequent reports:
    • Activity was: 9 suspended

9 terminated earlier

  • Describe:

B. 2) This report is a joint report:

  • 9 Yes, forward copy of agreement/endorsement by the designated national authorities involved

    9 No

B. 3) General short comment by the government(s) if applicable:

C. Compatibility with and supportiveness of national economic development and socioeconomic and environment priorities and strategies

Describe (to the extent possible) how the activity is compatible with and supportive of national economic development and socio?economic and environment priorities and strategies
  • The project, in principle, has a beneficial impact on the future business of a large, strategic industry , the SAMIR refinery whose premises are adjacent to those of the existing Power Plant where the new RGCC plant would be constructed.
  • Before obtaining the go ahead decision from the promoters and from all the parties involved, comprehensive feasibility studies shall have demonstrated that it is more cost-effective than other possible alternative options in reliably supplying the national electricity system, with consequent direct advantages for the national economy as a whole.
  • In view of their intrinsic technical characteristics, RGCC plants are environmentally friendly and a substantial reduction of the gaseous emissions in comparison with the traditional power generating units currently in operation.

This applies to all main pollutants (SOx, NOx, Dust, ashes) as well as to

the GHG emissions.

  • The Mohammedia region, which is densely populated by itself and is adjacent to the area of Casablanca where more than 4 million people live, suffers of a heavy polluted atmosphere. Therefore, improving the quality of air in such area constitutes a strategic priority for the environmental Authorities of Morocco.

D. Benefits derived from the activities implemented jointly project

Whenever possible, quantitative information should be provided. Failing that, a qualitative description should be given. If quantitative information becomes available, it could be submitted using the update(s). (If the amount of quantitative information is too large, the source could be indicated.)

Item

Please fill in

Describe environmental benefits in detail:

Polluting Emission Rates (mg/m3) % of reduction

Agent of existing equip of new RGCC from year 4

. (average ) (expected)

- SO2 2.900 100 96.5

- NOx 1 300 70 95

- Dust 650 10 98

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of environmental benefits?

Yes

Describe social/cultural benefits in detail:

  • The substantial social benefits for the population's health can be easily deducted from the above comparison table, considering that it applies to a 600 MW plant used as a 'base load' power station which is the largest of this kind in the entire region.
  • As regards sulphur emissions only, the estimated reduction is over 50 000 ton/year.
  • This project will consent an adequate capacity building in the specific field of atmospheric pollution since it would be among the first full-scale cases in the country and, considering that its is capable of attracting the support of bilateral international cooperation programmes, the knowledge and the technologies to became available after this instance will be useful for the general requirements of the environmental Authorities

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of social benefits?

Yes

Describe economic benefits in detail:

The RGCC project can be complemented only on condition that it proves to be east-effective in comparison to other alternative power generation systems (such as : traditional thermoelectric units - coal fired or fuel fired-or combined cycle modules fired by natural gas-although to-day no gas pipeline supplies the region. Therefore, its worthiness under the economic point of view shall be out of question.

On a macro-economic scale, it should be mentioned that the RGCC shall be integrated with the production facilities of the adjacent refinery so that the operators of the refinery would rely on a stable purchaser of hardly-marketable products (the residue is a mixture of highly polluted heavy oils and bitumen) which result from a raw material previously imported and paid in hard currency. Moreover, the refinery will benefit of a higher rate of utilisation of its plants and a higher flexibility in its products range. This shall ensure significant economic benefits for the entire region of Mohammedia.

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of economic benefits?

Yes
