Voith kits out Angolan hydropower plant

Voith has secured a $130m contract to supply generators and turbines for Cambambe II hydropower plant in Angola.

On completion, the plant located at River Kwanza is expected to double Angola's installed hydropower capacity.
As per the deal, the family-owned German engineering group will supply and install four generators and turbines, as well as the control and associated systems.

The capacity of the four generator turbine units will add a total of over 700MW.

Voith said that there is considerable potential for further hydropower development in Africa, which amounts to an expected 400GW, while the current installed capacity is no more than 25GW.
