About Generation

NamPower has four power stations:


  • Ruacana - Hydro - 330 MW
  • Van Eck - Coal - 120MW
  • Paratus - Diesel - 16 MW
  • ANIXAS - Diesel - 22 MW

Currently, Namibia imports most of its electricity from South Africa and other countries in the region. A special arrangement between NamPower and Eskom, the South African Power utility, enables Namibia to buy and utilise the surplus energy from SA at affordable rates. NamPower and Namibia are left with no option but to look at alternative power generation sources. The alternatives that are receiving renewed focus are the Kudu Gas-to-Power Project and the Epupa Baynes.
