Two new hydro projects open for comments under CDM

The Angolan Cambambe Hydroelectric Second Power Plant and the Repowering of Cambambe Central I Hydroelectric Power Plant are entering the public commenting phase of the CDM process.

The Cambambe Hydroelectric Second Power Plant CDM Project
The proposed CDM project comprises a capacity addition to the existing Cambambe Hydroelectric Power Plant (“Cambambe HPP”) with installation of additional 700 MW of the actual generation capacity. The electricity to be generated will be directly dispatched to the Northern Electric Grid of Angola, which is the most important and demanded subsystem of the country. The overall design of the project foresees a diversified number of activities including terrain leveling, civil construction, enhance of the water conductors, rehabilitation of the existent dam and others.
The project activity is located on the Municipality of Cambambe, distant 180 km east of Luanda, the National Capital of Angola. The dam is derived from the Kwanza River, which is located on the North Kwanza Province. The project developer is the Empresa Nacional de Eletricidade1 (hereafter named “ENE”), which is a public company responsible for the managing and operation of the energy sector, including the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in Angola, working in affiliation of the Ministry of Energy and Water.

Repowering of Cambambe Central I Hydroelectric Power Plant CDM Project
The proposed CDM project comprises an expansion of the installed capacity to the existing Cambambe Hydroelectric Power Plant (“Cambambe HPP”) with installation of additional 170 MW (divided in two installation phases) of the actual generation capacity. The electricity to be generated will be directly dispatched to the Northern Electric Grid of Angola, which is the most important and demanded subsystem of the country. The repowering of the plant will be conducted through the substitution of the electromechanical components, such as turbines and generators.
The project activity is located on the Municipality of Cambambe, distant 180 km east of Luanda, the National Capital of Angola. The dam is derived from the Kwanza River, which is located on the North Kwanza Province. The project developer is the Empresa Nacional de Eletricidade1 (hereafter named “ENE”), which is a public company responsible for the managing and operation of the energy sector, including the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in Angola, working in affiliation of the Ministry of Energy and Water.
