NWEC started full operations in Lumwana for the Lumwana Property Development Corporation (LPDC) in October 2008 where USD10 Million was invested to supply to the housing estate to cover 1000 houses and a few commercial areas such as banks and filling stations, which is called the Lumwana.
Later NWEC in 2012 was engaged by FQM to replicate the Lumwana power distribution model for the Kabitaka and Kalumbila township developments where the new Trident Mine was being developed
Therefore, so as the Lumwana Property Development Corporation project, NWEC signed 15-year concessions with First Quantum Minerals through Kabitaka Development Corporation and Kalumbila Town Development Corporation projects to design, finance, build and operate the power infrastructure at the two locations. In addition, electricity supply is also given to a few commercial areas in the township such as banks, filling stations, schools and clinics
