APP-001817 - THE OPERATION AND MANAGEMENT OF RUACANA EHA LODGE IN OMUSATI REGION

The ECC is for the Operation and Management of the Ruacana Eha Lodge in Omusati Region. Ruacana Eha Lodge in northern Namibia is situated in the Ruacana town and 22km from the Ruacana Power Station. The lodge is nestled in the Ruacana town council district and spans a total of 25965square meters. Surrounded by natural beauty, the lodge is a perfect gateway to the wonders of the Kaokoveld, the Etosha National Park, the Epupa falls and the vibrant African culture of the Omusati, Oshana, Ohangwena and Oshikoto regions. The Ruacana Eha Lodge belongs to NamPower is being run by the company’s generation business unit. The lodge is open not only to NamPower employees but to local and international visitors. Under the Environmental Management Act (Act 7 of 2007) and the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations (2012), the activity described as “Tourism development activities…” requires an Environmental Clearance Certificate. Ruacana Eha Lodge was constructed prior to the commencement of the Environmental Management Act and its regulation, as a result there was no environmental impact assessment study conducted for the project prior to its development. It is therefore against this background that NamPower intends to apply for the operational Environmental Clearance Certificate in order to comply to the Environmental Management Act (Act 7 of 2007) and its regulations.
