Zambia: Copperbelt Energy plans 40-MW hydropower project

Independent power company Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC) is planning to build a 40-MW hydropower plant, in Zambia, to further increase its electricity provision capacity.
CEC would invest about $120-million on developing the Kabompo Gorge hydropower project by 2015.

A feasibility study has been completed and the power company was negotiating the granting of a concession for the project. Construction was expected to start within the next two years.

The project area is located between Solwezi and Mwinilunga at Kabompo Gorge on Kabompo River, in the North Western Province of Zambia.

The estimated 34 MW power station project is expected to bring development opportunities to the districts around the project area and will connect into the main Zambian electricity grid through a transmission line to the nearest ZESCO substation at Lumwana.
