Enel Group’s global renewable- energy division, Enel Green Power (EGP), has started construction on the 34 MW Ngonye solar photovoltaic (PV) plant, the group’s first power plant in Zambia.

The PV facility, located in the Lusaka South Multi-Facility Economic Zone, in the country’s south, is part of the World Bank’s Scaling Solar programme carried out by Zambia’s Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), which, in 2016, awarded EGP the right to develop, finance, construct, own and operate the plant.

Enel Group will invest about $40-million in the construction of Ngonye, expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019.

In June, Enel Group signed a financing agreement for about $34-million with the Zambia IDC for the construction of the PV plant.
