Angola begins work on a 343km, 400-kV north-south power transmission line

Angola’s Government has begun construction works on a 400-kV high-voltage transmission line, which aims to carry power from the north to the south of the country.  The 343 km line will connect the towns of Huambo (central Angola) to Lubango in the south. Construction of the project is expected to take 26 months. The US$220m project will notably be financed by the African Development Bank.

According to its National Development Plan 2023-2024, Angola has placed the connection between the electrical systems in the center and south of the country at the center of its priorities, in order to provide households in the south with more reliable power supply.
