Angola is undertaking an extensive investment programme in order to solve the country's energy supply problems – Lahmeyer.de In the long term, the government is aiming to export electricity. The opening of the river diversion for the Laúca Hydropower Project in early September by the President of the Republic of Angola, José Eduardo dos Santos, marked a significant step forward. Lahmeyer supervised the project during its two-year construction phase. Two horse-shoe shaped tunnels with an inner diameter of 14 m, a total length of 1,021 m, and the corresponding intake and outlet structures divert the water of River Kwanza. They are designed [...]

The next generation of the company's permanent magnet, direct drive distributed wind turbines is now available. At 60 kilowatts of rated power, with a 24-meter rotor, the recently launched NPS 60-24 can produce substantial amounts of electricity to generate a healthy income stream. It provides long-term benefits with lower ownership costs over the lifetime of the turbine. A new 24-m rotor features state-of-the-art hub and blade technology with superior aerodynamics providing a larger swept area. This increases the annual energy production (AEP) of the NPS 60-24 by up to 15% over the previous NPS 60-23 model, dependent on wind conditions. The turbine [...]
