Huíla: Granite transforming industry workers


The highvoltage transport line of 400 kilovolts Lauca / Huambo is under construction.

However, from this line will leave an extension that will extend to the province of Huíla.

To this end, a substation is under construction at the Kilemba center for this purpose.

Currently with the serious situation of irregular supply of electricity from the public network, companies have an additional cost structure between 16 and 20 percent, with electricity from generators, which makes local products less competitive, according to the secretary general of Association of Local Commercial and Industrial Livestock (AAPCIL), Elísio da Costa Lobo, who spoke to Angop Thursday.

APPCIL was founded in 1991 and currently has 600 associates.
