Construction of Angola’s Lucala Industrial Pole to begin after landmine removal
[GBP Note - most commercial real estate developers should be thankful they don't have to deal with landmines during site preparation.]
Construction of the Lucala Industrial Pole will begin as soon as the operation to remove landmines in the project’s first phase implementation area is complete, Angolan Industry Minister Bernarda Gonçalves Martins said in Ndalatando, cited by Angop news agency.
Martins, who visited Kwanza Norte province for several hours to deal with issues associated to the industrial pole’s establishment, said that more than 50 hectares would be free of landmines within two months, “a necessary condition for the work to begin, especially on some of the buildings.”
She recalled that when the master plans for industrial poles were drawn up, taking into account the characteristics of each province, it was decided that in Kwanza Norte the emphasis would be on agro-industrial activity and construction material production.
The Kwanza Norte industrial park is almost entirely situated in Cambambe municipality and contains the Eka beer brewery, Satec textile factories and the Vinelo and Banangola beverage plants, which were inoperative for many years or still are.
