GE has been operating in Angola since 1958. Today, GE employs more than 500 people in businesses spanning across key sectors including oil and gas, power, healthcare and renewable energy.
GE has been collaborating with the Angolan government and other players in the private sector to help the country achieve its goals and objectives as per the national development plan 2018-2022. This collaboration has helped Angola explore a variety of opportunities, from new ways to generate power to modernizing healthcare and exploring renewable energy.
Powering Angola Forward
At GE we believe in the Power of Power to enable families, hospitals, and schools to do more. Year to date, GE’s commitment to powering Angola forward has enabled the deployment and installation of more than 30 power generation turbines across multiple power plants in Angola. In addition, GE supplied its world class 9E gas turbines as well as steam turbines to the combined cycle power plant in Soyo, Angola. GE’s 9E. has multiple features that help reduce fuel costs and with minimal environmental impact. At full potential the Soyo combined cycle power plant will generate 750MW, benefiting millions of families, schools and hospitals. GE Power continues to play an active role in strengthening the power sector by changing the longstanding narrative in the Angolan energy space with innovative energy projects like Soyo (Phases I & II) and the 200MW Angola Fast Power project providing power for up to 15% of Angola’s population using Trailer Mounted (TM2500) mobile aero-derivative gas turbine generator sets.
Other milestones include:
· GE power generation equipment is installed and operational in 10 Angolan provinces
· About 80% of gas to power generation in Angola uses GE technology, providing power to more than 1,9 million Angolan households.
· In 2017, GE funded energy projects in Angola with $ 1.1 billion, first of its kind financing strategy in sub-Saharan Africa.
GE’s Large Commercial Jet Engines power TAAG aircrafts supporting intercontinental and domestic itineraries.

For more than a century, volunteering has been a vibrant part of GE's culture, as both an individual employee activity and an organizational effort. We coordinate our resources - including people, products and funds – to develop tailored responses to local community needs. We believe that the ultimate measure of GE's business success is found in improvements to the lives and communities where GE employees live and work.
GE volunteers carry out a wide range of projects in the areas of community building, education, the environment and health. From the Lourenco Amadeu Orphanage in Cabinda to the Shelter Center for disadvantaged children in Zango and environmental causes in Luanda, Cabinda and Huambo. GE's volunteer team in Angola has been working actively on sustainability projects to raise the community to a better social inclusion.
