CMS Completes 348 Megawatt Jorf Lasfar Unit

LCG, Aug. 2, 2000--CMS Energy Corp. said yesterday its CMS Generation Co. independent power unit had begun commercial operation at Unit 3 of the largest independent power plant in Africa, the $1.5 billion coal-fueled Jorf Lasfar facility in Morocco.

The 348 megawatt Unit 3 joins Units 1 and 2, which total 660 megawatts, in supplying power to Office Nationale de lElectricit, the Moroccan national utility, under a 30-year contract. Completion of a fourth generating unit of 348 megawatts, which will bring total capacity of Jorf Lasfar to 1356 megawatts, is scheduled in the fourth quarter of this year.

The plant is located on the Atlantic coast of West Africa, about 85 miles southwest of Casablanca, and when complete will supply more than half of Moroccos electric supply.

"Since September 1997, when CMS Generation assumed operating responsibility for Jorf Lasfar,the plant has achieved consistently high levels of plant availability and output," said Rodney E.Boulanger, CMS Generation's president and chief executive. "Completion of Unit 3 was accomplished within the schedule originally announced, and construction of Unit 4 continues on schedule."
