Discover, evaluate and know how to take advantage of all the infrastructure partnership opportunities in the Angolan conventional and renewable energy sector
This conference segment exclusively dedicated to the water and sanitation sector aims to create a meeting, networking and mutual information sharing platform between all the stakeholders involved in the infrastructural development of the electrical energy sector in Angola. The meeting will bring together high level officials from the Angolan Ministry of Energy and Water, senior executives and engineers from public companies, senior executives and engineers from companies supplying services and products to the electrical infrastructure and financial environment institutions involved in the sector. Participants will be able to get to know the development plans and action policies, analyse the latest regulatory and legal developments and discuss solutions and needs, as well as identify partnership opportunities. The objective is to enable all participants to take successful advantage of all the partnership opportunities.
The energy sector in Angola
Angola’s Minister of Energy and Water, João Batista Borges, recently stated that the large investments expected in the electrical sector will be used to meet electricity demand, which has registered an estimated annual growth of 12%, as well as to meet the challenges linked to industrialization and the emergence of new housing complexes. According to the Minister, the foreseen development programme for the sector will extend to 2016 and entails system rehabilitation and expansion, in order that installed capacity may reach 5000 MW, to ensure a reliable and regular energy supply to the entire country. The investment expected is 9 billion dollars, for the installation of production capacity and 7,5 billion dollars for the associated transmission system.
- Governmental development plan until 2016: includes the establishment of more than 700 MW in production and a 2.607km transmission grid, construction of 46 small hydroelectric power plants, establishment of a 2.350km distribution network and the construction of 37 new substations and 1200 transformer posts, increase in the number of household connections (estimated at 2 million), 1,5% increase in the proportional section of the energy matrix for clean and renewable energies.
- Contingency plan for the Luanda Province: installation of a 40 MW power station in Viana, two gas turbines with a capacity of 25MW each in Morro Bento and a 20MW power station in Zango.
- Cabinda Electrification Plan: estimated at USD 1000 million, implementation will start in 2012 and will run for a period of nine years, aiming to cover all municipality seats and remote areas, including electrical energy agricultural-industrial perimeters.
- Thermoelectric power station in Menongue: with a capacity of 10MW and an investment of USD 40 million. The infrastructure will be built within a maximum period of six to eight months by Chinese construction companies “Sinohydro” and “Wangol”. The project also includes 2.500 new household connections, medium and low voltage network upgrades and a public lighting system upgrade.
- Renewable Energy: construction of the Namib wind farm with a 100MW capacity and 50 windmills, as well as the installation of more than 90 solar energy systems in the various provinces, during 2012 and within the scope of the “Solar Village” project.
- Mini-Hydros and Natural Gas: construction of two mini-hydros, one in the River Kwebe and another in the River Kueley, as well as the construction of a natural gas plant in Soyo, in 2012, with an installed capacity of 60MW.
