Zambia: KfW funds expansion of Chishimba Falls

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.
