MOTA‐ENGIL ANGOLA CONTRIBUTES TO THE REINFORCEMENT OF THE ELECTRICITY NETWORK IN LUNDA‐SUL.
AEnergia awarded Mota‐Engil Angola, in May 2017, the execution of the construction project, including all works and supplies, except for the supply of generators.
The contract consists of the execution of a plant with 19.6 MW installed power, with seven diesel‐based generators (7 x 2.8 MW) and 15 kV step‐up transformers, and all necessary technical systems, including storage, treatment and distribution of
fuel, with vertical fuel tanks (2 x 250 + 2
x 400) m3 and puri cation, control and automation (SCADA) system, water supply and  re safety.
The contract also contemplates the construction of two buildings, the  rst including the plant’s management and
control facilities, which are administrative in nature, and the second intended for the installation of a laboratory component.
The value of the works and supplies awarded to Mota‐Engil Angola, contractually established at the date when the agreement was signed, is 12.9 million dollars.
The plant is an equipment long‐awaited by the local population and administration, since access to energy is currently very limited, which makes this issue of access to energy a central concern of the city’s population and authorities, as well as of the province of Lunda‐Sul itself.
This plant, which is expected to be able to start its regular operation at the end of
the year, will contribute signi cantly to the reduction of the existing problems since, in addition to a signi cant increase in the installed power capacity, it will enable
a sharp improvement of the electrical system’s management capacity by Prodel and ENDE.
This is not the  rst work of its kind that Mota‐Engil Angola carries out in Saurimo. In late November, the company completed the works awarded by AEnergia for the construction of a 5‐MW Fast‐Power Plant.
The contract is a work of MEA – Electromecânica, which ensures its full execution and management.
