'Green' energy will allow the Government to save 19 million liters of fuel per year

The inauguration of the Saurimo Photovoltaic Park, in Lunda Sul – to be carried out this Tuesday, by the Ministry of Energy and Water – will allow the Government to save 19 million liters of fuel annually. Furthermore, according to a press release, the use of clean electrical energy will also result in a reduction in the emission of more than 68 thousand tons of CO2 annually.

The Saurimo Photovoltaic Park has an installed capacity of 26.13 megawatts, which will produce "'green' electricity to supply 171,565 people", says the Government of Lunda Sul, in the statement.

The aforementioned park, whose budget is around 38.8 million euros, has 44,850 panels, with production reaching around 49,000 megawatts per year.

Regarding the flow of this energy, the construction of a 15 kV (kilovolt) medium voltage line will be planned, which will connect the photovoltaic plant and the sectioning station, which will be ready for future connections to the stations in Tchicumina, Nhama, as well how to interconnect the Hidrochicapa line.

It should be noted that the Saurimo Photovoltaic Park is part of a group of seven, "with a total capacity of 370 MWp, in the provinces of Benguela, Huambo, Bié, Lunda Norte (in Lucapa) and Moxico (in Luena), which should be operational by the end of this year", says the statement from the provincial government.

The note also states that solar parks also make it possible to "eliminate the need to consume around 1.4 million liters of diesel in generators and thermal production, with highly polluting effects, which will allow for very significant savings in import costs of fuels".

The Government's objective, identified in the 'Energy Angola 2025' plan, according to the statement, involves diversifying Angola's energy matrix, as well as having approximately 60 percent of the rural population with access to electricity.

It is worth remembering that, last month, Arlindo Carlos, Secretary of State for Energy, said that the Saurimo plant was in the testing phase, and was expected to come into operation in April.
