In the presence of 500 international guests from the political, industrial and social arenas, Angola’s Vice President Manuel Domingos Vicente officially opened the Cambambe 2 hydropower plant at the end of June 2017.
Technology Group Voith was the project’s key partner and was responsible for the supply and installation of the turbines, generators, control technology and associated electromechanical systems. The order volume for Voith amounted to more than EUR €100 million.
The new Cambambe 2 hydropower plant has four generator-turbine units with a total installed capacity of 700 MW. In the future, the plant on the River Kwanza will generate electricity for up to eight million of Angola’s residents.
