Western Power Company – a joint venture between African Power Projects (a Zambian-owned company) and Infraco Africa (represented by its principal developer eleQtra) – is developing a run of river hydropower project at Ngonye Falls, which lies on the Zambezi River about 320km upstream of
Victoria Falls.

The project will take a portion of the water from the left hand channel just above the falls to generate up to 45MW of electricity, which will help alleviate the power shortages currently being experienced in Zambia and support government policy of developing electricity exports to surrounding countries.
