PROJECT NAME: FIRM (ANIXAS II) POWER STATION
LOCATION: Walvis Bay, Namibia
The project entails a 50MW power plant utilising either Internal Combustion Reciprocating Engine (ICRE) or Gas Turbine (GT) technology with liquid fuel (LFO/HFO) or LNG/CNG as fuel options. The power station will be owned and operated by NamPower, and its purpose will be to ensure that dispatchable power is available to cater for emergency power to the Namibian grid during times of shortage within the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) and to help minimise or avoid load-shedding. This power station could also be dispatched to cater for Renewable Energies intermittency events and thereby indirectly support Namibia’s commitments to increase their share of renewable energy.
N$ 1.2 billion (US$ 86 million).
Project completion for the power station is planned for February 2022.
