Zambia-Zimbabwe-Botswana-Namibia Interconnector (ZiZaBoNa) – Phase A – ARAP Summary


The ZIZABONA transmission project consists of the development, financing, construction and operation of new transmission facilities in Zambia and Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia with the view to facilitate the establishment of a western transmission corridor in Southern Africa. The project derives its name from the first two letters of each of the four countries involved. The electricity utilities of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia signed an Inter-Utility Memorandum for the development of the transmission network called ZIZABONA in 2007, and an Inter-Governmental Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the governments of the four countries in 2012 to ensure improved transmission of electric power between the participant nations.
