Ingeteam supplier of solutions in Angola
March 14, 2012
Ingeteam was recently registered with the Angolan Ministry of Energy as a recommended supplier of solutions and equipment for energy projects.
Representatives from the company held meetings with the Energy and Water Minister of the Republic of Angola, as well as with the country's most important electricity distribution companies.
This official registration as supplier of energy related solutions and equipment allows Ingeteam to participate in public tenders. Angola is strongly committed to the development of renewable energies. Even though the solar and wind energy is very common in Spain in that country this type of energy is only now beginning to be developed. Nevertheless, there are several water-based energy generation projects “in the pipeline”.
The Angolan authorities have assured us that the electricity demand is constantly increasing, whilst the fossil sources are an immediate threat to the health of the Environment. For this reason the country is strongly committed to developing renewable energies. Proof of this is the fact that it has already placed a call for tenders for 5 turnkey mini-hydraulic power plants.
