The memorandum could pave the way for the construction of the Baines dam with a 600-megawatt production capacity in the near future.

The document was signed by the minister of Energy and Water, João Baptista Borges, and on the Namibian side by the minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, Alpheus Naruseb.

In a statement to the press, minister João Baptista Borges stressed the importance of the memorandum, which will allow the preparation of studies to interconnect the two countries in the field of electricity and the construction of an energy venture in the region of Ruacaná.

The project starts running in 2021 and will last four and a half years. Each country will benefit from 300 megawatts of the Baines hydroelectric dam.
