A turbine with a production capacity of 28 megawatts that on Sunday started producing electricity in the municipality of Moçâmedes has brought an end to the cycle of restrictions in place for over two months, said the Angolan Minister for Energy and Water.
Minister João Baptista Borges, after praising the work carried out by the contractor that installed the turbine in just two months, said this project made it possible to close the electricity gap in the city of Moçâmedes and guarantee a power supply to the city’s industrial zone.
Baptista Borges gave assurances that the city will be connected to the national electricity grid within less than three years, when it will have access to enough power to allow large projects to be launched.
The minister said that in the province of Huíla will, in the near future, have more electricity with the launch of a new 28 megawatt turbine, which is currently being installed in the Xitoto (Namibe) thermal power station. (macauhub)
