  • Angola government officials have inaugurated the 26MW Saurimo solar park in the Lunda Sul province located in the extreme east of the country.

According to the Ministry of Energy and Water, the PV project required an investment of USD 41.8 million. Featuring 44,850 solar panels, Saurimo is expected to be capable of generating enough clean electricity to meet the demand of around 171,000 people.

The project is part of a group of seven solar parks totalling 370 MW which are being rolled out in the provinces of Benguela, Huambo, Bie, Lunda Norte and Moxico. The ministry expects all the projects to be fully commissioned by the end of the year.
