Find Electricity and Power expertise in Namibia
NamPower is the national electric power utility of Namibia. Its overall operations include the generation and transmission of electricity. NamPower has on occasion imported power from the surrounding Southern African Development Community (SADC) region, particularly from Eskom in South Africa. Namibia has a peak power demand of 550 megawatts (MW) and can only generate 240 MW from Ruacana hydro-power station when it is running at full capacity, especially in the rainy season; about 120 MW from coal-fired Van Eck; and about 24 MW from Paratus power station, near Walvis Bay. The country is looking to nuclear technologies to fill its energy gaps and set up the Namibia Atomic Energy Board in 2009. The Electricity Control Board regulates the sector.
