Germany’s KfW has extended grant financing totalling €41.5m ($46.6m) for the rehabilitation and expansion of the 6MW Chishimba Falls hydropower plant in Kasama District in Northern Province. The project, which involves the rehabilitation and upgrading of existing structures and the construction of a new 15MW hydropower station and associated substation, will help meet increasing energy demand in northern Zambia, which has been experiencing low voltage and power outages in recent years, KfW principal project manager Marco Freitag told African Energy.
