Copperbelt Energy Corporation Plc (CEC) intends to implement a project to connect Dangote power plant to the national grid through the CEC network to allow extra capacity at Dangote power station to be supplied into the grid and/or allow the cement production facility to obtain power from the grid when required.

To establish grid connection to Dangote, CEC plans to extend the existing 66kV network from Ndola Refinery substation to the Dangote cement plant. This will involve installation of a line bay at Ndola Refinery substation, construction of about 15km of a 66kV transmission line from Ndola Refinery substation to Dangote site and construction of a new 66/11kV substation at the Dangote plant site.

In compliance with the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations of 1997, CEC has conducted an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) as well as a Livelihood Restoration Plan (LRP) for consideration by the Zambia Environmental Management Agency.

In view of the aforesaid, CEC invites government agencies, local authorities, local traditional leadership, non-government organisations, community-based organisations, affected communities, interested parties and the general public to a public consultation (Disclosure) meeting on the proposed CEC Dangote Grid Connection Project ESIA. Meetings will be held as follows:
