The Kingdom of Sweden will allocate $ 1 billion to Angola for the electrification of the Dembos Region. In this part of the province of Bengo, 22,000 people will have access to electricity thanks to this funding. This initiative will be implemented in two years.
It will particularly target the municipalities of Dembos, Bula Atumba, Pango Aluquém, as well as the municipalities of Muxaluando, Gombe; Zala, Ucua, Kicabo, Mabubas and Bela Vista.
The project will consist concretely in the installation of five electrical substations of 125 MVA and in the construction of 304 kilometers of electrical lines of 30 and 60 kilovolts. 4,000 public lampposts will also be installed in the Region and connections will be made to the homes of residents.
Ewa Polano, Sweden’s ambassador to Angola, says funding for this project is guaranteed. Only a few questions are still pending with the Ministry of Energy before the launch of the project.
