NamPower launches tender for Kudu GTP plant
Following a push from the Namibian government and positive noises from Tullow Oil and its upstream partners, Namibia Power Corporation (NamPower) is inviting companies to prequalify for the turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for an 800MW combined-cycle gas turbine plant using gas from the Kudu field. The move adds to signs of life in the long-delayed project, reflecting an upturn in appetite across southern Africa for cross-border electricity supply schemes. The unit would supply power to NamPower, Eskom’s grid in South Africa and potentially other regional offtakers.
