NamPower is the national power utility of Namibia and specialises in the generation and transmission of electricity. As an electricity company NamPower understands that electricity invariably plays an important role in the socio-economic development of Namibia. As the engine that drives progress, our main objectives are the availability, affordability and accessibility of electricity to as many Namibians as possible within the shortest possible time. NamPower's main sources of power are the thermal, coal-fired Van Eck Power Station outside Windhoek, the hydroelectric plant at the Ruacana Falls in the Kunene Region, and the standby diesel-driven Paratus Power Station at Walvis Bay. NamPower also has a world-class transmission network.
