The Angolan government has been working on an energy sector development plan for the past decade, with the goal of strengthening the country's electricity generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure. The Lauca hydroelectric plant, with a capacity of 2.1 GW, is the result of this initiative.
Due to lack of funding, this electricity generation point could not be connected to Luanda, the main urban centre with over 2.5 million inhabitants.
In 2018 one of the government's priorities was to find a financial solution that would make it feasible to construct an electricity transmission infrastructure connecting the dam to the country's capital.
Dominion submitted a project plan with an end-to-end solution that would allow for such an infrastructure to be created. Dominion submitted the following key points:
- To provide the financial structuring for the project though European financial organisations, guaranteeing the feasibility of the project.
- Designing a global project team, collaborating with various international partners to provide the necessary expertise for each stage of the project: engineering, purchasing, construction and equipment supplies, among others.
- To perform all the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) and the mitigation plans which result from said assessment. All of this in line with the standards and requirements of the IFC (International Financial Corporation), which are much stricter than local regulations.
- To provide expert knowledge regarding integral management of this type of project, using proprietary technology and management platforms to maximise the efficiency of each process.
The transmission line from Lauca to Bita (Luanda) will supply renewable electricity to the capital's inhabitants. This is an infrastructure with the most cutting-edge technology in its field, designed to facilitate subsequent maintenance.
