In 2017,  Angola signed a deal with China for the construction of the Caculo Cabaca Hydropower Project in Dondo, Angola.

The project is worth $4.5 billion and is set to produce 2,172 megawatts of electricity. The project will take about seven years to be completed.

A similar project is ongoing at the Kaleta hydroelectric facility in Guinea, worth $526 million, with China funding 75 per cent of the project.
