Namibia Counting on Mozambique as Power Source

From All Africa

Mozambique plans to export 122 megawatts of electricity to Namibia, from a gas fired power station at Ressano Garcia, on the border with South Africa.

The Ressano Garcia electricity generation park is operated by the British company Aggreko. The first phase of the project, inaugurated in 2012, had a generation capacity of 110 megawatts.
