Today, March 3rd, completes the fifth day of implementation of MINEA’s Contingency Plan to Combat the Covid 19 epidemic. The Minister of Energy and Water João Baptista Borges headed a delegation also integrated by the Secretaries of State for Water and Energy and visited the points of supply of tanker trucks, known as giraffes (Calumbo, Kikuxi, Dona Xepa).
During this visit, which was also attended by INADEC officials and the Truckers Association, it was possible to verify the level of operation of each of these facilities. According to EPAL’s PCA, the visited facilities are responding positively to the current demand, which guarantees the success of the Contingency Plan, according to its conception.
The delegation also went to the Bengo Province to see the advances made in the Construction of the Capari Giraffe.
