APP-003350 - THE ECC APPLICATION FOR THE OPERATION, MAINTENANCE AND UPGRADE OF AN EXISTING ZAMBEZI TRANSMISSION STATION IN ZAMBEZI REGION

The ECC is for the operation, maintenance and upgrade of an existing Zambezi Transmission line.Under the Environmental Management Act (Act 7 of 2007) and the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations (2012), the activity described as “The construction of facilities for the transmission and supply of electricity…” requires an Environmental Clearance Certificate. Zambezi substation 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 Management Act (Act 7 of 2007) and its regulations.

Commenting of the public on this project will expire at 12h00 on the 2022-01-19
