CGGC wins contract to expand Lua Sim hydropower station in Angola

EBR Staff Writer Published 18 November 2013

China Gezhouba (Group) Corporation (CGGC) has won a contract from the Department of Energy of Angola to refurbish and expand the Lua Sim hydropower station in Lunda-Norte Province.

Under the contract, CGGC will repair the existing hydropower equipment, replace the existing channel by a new feeder canal, and construct a new power house with an installed capacity of 48.5MW and a new 10/60kV transformer substation.

Located on the Lua Sim River, the 40-year old project will ensure energy security and improve local economy, social stability and investment environment.

The company intends to complete these rehabilitation works on the project in around three years that is currently in very poor condition and out of operation.
