According to MSN, Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. announced that Asola, its German partner, has entered into a joint partnership with Moroccan company Majdaline Holding. The two companies will join forces to build a solar power manufacturing plant. The plant will produce enough solar power modules to generate 30 MW of power each year, and has the potential to bring in $100 million annually.

From the article on MSN MoneyCentral, here are some comments on why Quantum Fuel Systems and Asola were chosen for this project:

"In view of the rising demand for energy, the high price of oil and shrinking reserves, many countries are facing the challenge of developing alternative energy sources and prioritizing their utilization. Morocco has recognized the strategic importance of renewable energy early, and has compiled a law (EEG Morocco), to promote R&D and utilization of clean renewable energy, to improve energy security and protect the environment, while supporting lasting economic and social development of Morocco," commented His Excellency Mohammed Rachad Bouhlal, Morocco’s ambassador to Germany, Mr. Elbied, CEO and President of Majdaline Group and Dr. Ayaita, Professor of Electrical Engineering, University of Kassel, Germany, in a joint statement. "We are impressed by Quantum and Asola and their extensive background in clean and renewable energy systems and look forward to a long- term collaboration with them."
