Odebrecht Angola, via Odebrecht Infraestrutura, starting in February plans to install in Angola five sets of equipment that will stabilise the electricity provided by hydroelectric power plants, the Brazilian company said.

The equipment will be installed in Soyo (2), Nzeto(2) and Capari (1).

A partnership between Odebrecht Infrasestrutura and Angolan power company Empresa Nacional de Electricidade de Angola (ENEA) by July of 2013 had set up three similar systems in Viana, Capanda and Uíge.

By April of this year the Brazilian company plans to set up the Biocom 110 KV sub-station and install the power transmission line that will link Biocom to the Cacusso sub-station some 19 kilometres away.

According to Leonardo Figueiredo the company will also re-route the Kwanza River in order to build the Laúca Hydroelectric facility in Dombo-Ya-Pepe, Kwanza Norte province, 282 kilometres from Luanda, which will be the first phase of the project. (macauhub)
