Electricity needs in Namibia is a matter of national urgency. And with the recent earthquake in Japan which has brought and caused developed nations to review their Nuclear Power Plants, with Germany reporting yesterday that it will shut down its Nuclear Power Plants, this has caused electricity need in Namibia to be urgently reviewed.
However, Namibia’s reliance for electricity import from South Africa is about to end. For the first time in the history of Namibia, Namibia will have its own electricity Power Generation Plant.
We, at Groot Property Group (Pty) Ltd, have now completed the phase process needed for the development of our 800 MWe+ Gas Fired-Power Station in the South of Namibia; the next Phase is to design, build, and feed adequate electricity to Namibia; and in about 13 months, Namibia will no longer import electricity from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia and DRC.
We have and are bringing together all the relevant parties including scientists, engineers, investors, Natural Gas suppliers, electricity distributors, and regulatory agencies with a budget of up to US$900 million to make this Power Plant happen fast and ready for operational before we open Phase One of our multifarious ecosystem development, Groot Town Center.
Namibia currently consumes about 400 MWe, or about 3.2 TW (2009) annually. The Groot Town Center ecosystem will consume about 400 MWe. Hence the development of our 800+ MWe Gas Power Plant will enable to supply adequate and reliable electricity for our ecosystem development as well as to feed the electricity surplus to the entire country of Namibia.
For the first time in the history of Namibia, Namibia will produce its own electricity. And that should reduce electricity cost and fees in Namibia at least by 30%.
About 80% of the rural area in Namibia doesn’t have electricity; it’s too expensive. Well, in just a matter of 13 months, that should be no longer the case.
And in about 6 years, we will build a 6,000 MWe Power Station in Namibia using advanced, efficient, non-radioactive, safer, cleaner technology, and this will further cut down the cost of electricity in Namibia at least by 60%, and make Namibia able to supply electricity to its neighboring countries at the cost cheaper than what they pay for to produce their own.
People of Namibia, please work with us, support us; what we are doing is for our country, our people, our government. Help us to make this happen. We have the skills, expertise, knowledge, technology, and the resources; all we need is your full support.
Together, united as one, we can do the impossible, which will benefit the whole country of Namibia; from the South to the North, and East to the West; for all of us, Namibians, and our neighboring friends.
