In a bid to deliver power to millions of people in Angola, the country has received a $51 million boost from the British government for the upgrade of two power stations.
The upgrades to the power stations will be in Viana and Gabela.
The British Prime Minister’s trade envoy for Angola and Zambia, Baroness Lindsay Northover, confirmed the reports by saying the deal allows Angola to enter a global marketplace now, which in turn will allow the country to deliver power to millions of Angolans.
She added that: “I have visited Angola regularly in the last two years in support of UK- Angola business co-operation, and am acutely aware of the growing opportunities there. It is wonderful that these important projects have come to fruition and I look forward to seeing more in the future.”
Endorsed by the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Petroleum, Africa Oil & Power will organize the first Angola Oil & Gas conference, which will be held on June 4-6, 2019 in Luanda. Registration is now open.
