Construction of the 400 kV power line between Windhoek and Namibia`s border with South Africa should be completed by the end of 1999, according to NamPower. The 735 km single-circuit power line has reached Gibeon while the new Kokerboom substation, 15 km east of Keetmanshoop, is nearing completion. The project will help remedy Namibia`s electricity shortfall.
