Arandis Power in the dark

NamPower has halted Arandis Power’s 120MW Heavy Fuel Oil Power Project, citing that “circumstances have changed” and that Namibia no longer needs the additional 120 MW from the project.

NamPower decides Arandis Power’s fate

The NamPower Board was expected to decide this week whether or not the utility will sign a power purchase agreement with Arandis Power, a private company that is planning to set up a 120MW Heavy Fuel Oil power station in Arandis in the Erongo region.
