51-month construction period to help the development of mining and agriculture
According to reports, the Xiakaifu Gorge Hydropower Station to be built this time is the first hydropower station invested and developed in Zambia in 40 years. The installed capacity of the hydropower station is 750,000 kilowatts, which will increase Zambia’s existing electricity by 38%, meet the country’s electricity demand in the next 5 to 10 years, and provide stable power guarantee for its mining and agricultural development.
China Power Construction Group is a wholly state-owned company, mainly engaged in the development and operation of construction projects, electric power, water conservancy and other resources. The group’s Sinohydro entered the Zambian market in 1999. As of the end of 2014, the completed and under construction projects involved hydropower stations, transmission lines, roads and other fields. Zambia is an important cooperative partner of China in Africa. The country is rich in water resources, with a power generation capacity of 6000 MW. The installed capacity in 2014 was only 2203 MW, which has great potential for development.
In recent years, African emerging economies have significantly increased their investment in infrastructure construction. The priority action areas of the African Union’s 2012-2020 infrastructure development plan involve energy, transportation, water resources, communications and other aspects. The total investment scale is estimated to reach 67.9 billion U.S. dollars, of which energy investment is as high as 40.3 billion U.S. dollars.
