Caraculo Photovoltaic Plant brings energy to Namibe later this year

By December, the Caraculo Photovoltaic Power Station – under construction – should supply 25 megawatts of clean energy to Namibe province.


The information was released this Tuesday, in Moçamedes, by the project director, Rui Bastos. To Angop, the official said that 46,000 solar panels are already in storage. "By December we have concluded the first phase, which will provide 25 megawatts to reinforce the distribution network", he advanced. In a second phase, the plant will reach full energy production capacity (50 megawatts).

At the moment, photovoltaic panels are being installed, which will serve for energy transfer.

This project comes from an investment of around 42 million dollars, with an estimated useful life of 25 years. With the start-up of the plant, savings of around US$28 million are expected, taking into account the replacement of diesel with renewable energy.

According to the official, linked to the company Saipem, the project will increase the production of renewable energy, contributing to the reduction of the energy deficit in the country. In this way, the Caraculo Photovoltaic Power Station will allow the reduction of diesel consumption for the thermal power stations, as well as the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.

Employing 230 employees, the project also includes the installation of water systems in the locality of Caraculo, taking into account the promotion of agriculture and the needs of human consumption.

More than 10,000 people live in this area, most of them animal raisers (beef and goat gabo) as well as small farmers, who are dedicated to the cultivation of cereals and vegetables.
