ZESCO to export more electricity to Namibia
- Updated: December 16, 2013
ZAMBIA is expected to export an additional 50 Mega Watts (MW) of power to Namibia, in order to boost that country’s energy supply system,NamPower chief executive officer Paulimus Shilambaa has said.
Mr Shilamba said Namibia has applied for an additional 100 Mega Watts (MW) of power to be imported from Zambia through Zesco.
Nampower presently receives 50 MW of electricity daily from Zesco and the firm is negotiating with the Zambian power utility firm to provide Namibia with more power to Namibia.
“We have requested for an additional 100 MW of electricity daily and with the recent expansion of power stations in Zambia, it could be possible for Zesco to sell us more power,” Mr Shilamba said in a statement.
Negotiations over a possible fresh deal with Zesco had reached at an advanced stage as NamPower was also negotiating for increased power imports from Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
