The Government of Uganda has made an oath to boost the reliability and stability of power supply to the industries recently as noted below.
The government commissioned the Namanve 189 megawatt (MW) substation, expected to boost reliability and stability of power supply to the industries in Kampala business and industrial park, otherwise referred to as Namanve industrial park.
Additionally, Mark Namungo, the Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited (UETCL) project manager electrification of industrial parks, said the substation purposely addresses the power stability and reliability challenges faced by industries in the industrial park.
Namanve is the most popular industrial park with many industrialists scrambling to own a piece of land because of its prime location and access.
The park, which currently consumes 50MW of electricity according to Uganda Investment Authority in 2018, was at full capacity being home to 290 prospective industrialists.
Finally, at the completion of this project, many business ventures have to rise up and perhaps recover.
