Nampower to install new transformer to restore power in country’s North

Namibia: Namibia’s utility company Nampower will install a new transformer at its Okatope Substation, following extensive damage caused to the existing unit by lightning on 18 December.

A new transformer has been transported from Windhoek to Okatope to replace the damaged one and restore power to parts of the Ohangwena, and Otjikoto and Oshana regions, which have been without power since 17 and 18 December, respectively, reports Namibia Economist.

Nampower said the installation of the transformer will take place on 22 December.
