Expansion of Namibia's Ruacana hydropower plant complete

President Hifikepunye Pohamba turned Ruacana's new fourth turbine on at a ceremony this past week, raising the hydropower facility's total generating capacity from 240 MW to about 330 MW.
An expansion of Namibia's Ruacana hydroelectric plant should serve as a catalyst in the country's plan to overcome its energy debt, says President Hifikepunye Pohamba.

Even combined with the country's other sources, however, the government says its total generation falls short of Namibia's 550 MW of demand.
