Project Title 120 ha of Wheat and Maize Irrigation Scheme
Location Mupapama , Kavango Region
Project Objectives & Description

Rentel Farming Development (Pty) Ltd (RFD) plans to farm 120 ha wheat and maize as main crops. The company secured a 25 year lease agreement on a 173 ha communal land at Mupapama, Kavango Region. The project operations will utilise center pivot irrigation extracting water from the perennial of Okavango River.

The company intends to erect four 30 ha center pivots to put 120ha under irrigation and to plant maize in summer and wheat in winter. The land not covered by the center pivots, will at a later stage be developed under fruits and vegetables, for which a shortage exists in Namibia.

Opportunity

Namibia is not self - sufficient in the production of wheat and maize. Over the past years, the average annual production for both crops have been lower compared to the average annual consumption. The difference between the market demand and local production has been imported.

The planned maize production by RDF of 1200 ton pa, represents a market share of 0,9 %. The planned wheat production of 600 tons pa, represents 0.75%.

Technical Proposal Environmental Impact Study has been completed and approved. A permit for water extraction has been secured. Electrical power is available about 1.5 km from the farm.
Financial Proposal The total funding requirement is estimated at N$ 20.8 million. RDF has invested own capital of N$ 6 million to secure the 25 year lease, engineering designs, project plan, the EIA and clearing of land and a fence.
Proposed Deal Structure Equity contribution N$4.4 million for a 43% share. A further loan of N$ 10.4 million by loan finance.

Project Title 8000 Head-of-Cattle Feedlot
Project Owner / Promoter Namibia Feedlots (Pty) Ltd, Stanley Nick Katzao
Location Hardap Irrigation Scheme, Mariental, Hardap Region
Project Objectives & Description

Namibia Feedlots business idea emanates from an untenable continues exportation of Namibian weaners to South Africa to be reared there and the consequent under-utilization of the local export abattoirs over the past few years, resulting in the country not being able to meet its export potential and subsequently missing out on premium foreign currency.

The following are some of the primary business objectives of Namibia Feedlots (Pty) Ltd:

  1. Reaching 90% occupancy on 5,000 head of cattle at the end of the first year of operation;
  2. Reaching 8,000 head of cattle capacity by the end of the third year;
  3. To reduce the incidence of dark cutters, bruising and quality variations by 70% to 80% by the end of year 2.
  4. To lessen the exportation of Namibian weaners on the hoof to South Africa by 50% by the end of year 4.
Output Capacity Between 27,000 and 44,000 slaughter-ready cattle per year
Technology
  • Crop farming technologies
  • Centre Pivot and other irrigation technologies
  • Cattle feed mixing and batching technologies
Opportunity
  • US Beef Export Access
  • International Beef Export Access
  • Local and Regional Beef Consumption
Value Proposition

Feeding rations to be manufactured from naturally grown grain at the Hardap Irrigation Scheme and be scientifically formulated to ensure maximum cattle performance, producing the highest quality beef known in the region.

Best animal stewardship and feed conversion through timely feeding, water supply, efficient pen drainage and cleaning.

No growth stimulants, genetically modified feedstuff or antibiotics will be used to enhance growth.

Project Status
  1. The economic feasibility studies, feedlot concept drawings and environmental impact assessment reports have been completed and presented to the relevant Ministries. The consultants tasked with conducting the study have recommended the development of the feedlot based on its economic feasibility.
  2. A 99-year lease agreement between Namibia Feedlots and the Ministry of Agriculture has been signed for a 122-hectare piece of land on the Hardap Scheme for the construction of the feedlot infrastructure. The process of notarizing this agreement is underway.
  3. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Development gave its endorsement to the project in December 2012 as a National Project.
  4. The then Minister of Lands requested Namibia Feedlots to solicit interest from private land owners on the Hardap Scheme to sell their land and forward such information to the Ministry to acquire same. This was done in 2014, and a list of interested landowners forwarded to the Ministry.
  5. The then Minister of Trade requested Namibia Feedlots to provide a model for the procurement, ownership and operation of the acquired land to support the case for the acquisition of the land. The model was presented to the Minister of Trade in 2014.
Technical Proposal
  1. Construction of first 3 x 9 ha centre pivot irrigation facilities at the current feedlot site.
  2. Construction of the Feedlots Infrastructure, including cattle pens, handling facilities, feed mixing facilities, silos and sheds.
  3. Procurement of all equipment needed for crop production.
  4. Procurement of cattle transportation trucks.
Financial Proposal & Deal Structure

Project Title Aloe Investment 27 (Pty) Ltd
Location Rosh Pinah, Karas Region
Project Objectives & Description

ALOE Investment 27 is a Special Purpose Vehicle established in 2015 and holder of one of the twenty-seven licenses in the Interim REFiT Programme.

The key objective of the project is to develop the Rosh Pinah 5 MW power plant at Rosh Pinah on the surroundings of LORELEI 66/33 kV substation.

Opportunity

A significant share of electricity is generated at the Ruacana hydropower station on the Kunene River which forms the shared border with Angola. This run-of-river facility has an estimated rated output of 249 MW and has commissioned its fourth unit, increasing its generation capacity by 90 MW.

The plant is operated as a base-load resource during the rainy season (typically February- May) and as a peaking resource during the rest of the year. The second largest plant is a dry cooled coal-fired power station at Van Eck, with installed capacity of 120 MW operated with coal imported entirely from South Africa and scheduled for rehabilitation

There is also Anxias, a relatively new short-term emergency generation heavy fuel oil facility with a capacity of 22, 5 MW. Lastly, a 24 MW diesel station at Paratus is used as an emergency stand-by power plant for the Erongo Region. Together, these power plants comprise the sum total of the domestic electricity supply and, as such, they are insufficient. Furthermore, these plants are old (all commissioned in the '70s) and have high operating and maintenance costs

Namibia imports above 60% of its total electricity needs. The imports comprise almost two thirds of its electricity consumption, leaving Namibia very vulnerable.

Technical Proposal

The proposed 5MW Rosh Pinah power plant will generate electricity using photovoltaic panels in a square array. The DC power generated will be converted to AC power using inverters.

Rosh Pinah is a mining town located in southern Namibia, close to the border with South Africa. It is situated 360 kilometres south of Keetmanshoop in Namibia's Karas Region. The operators are in agreement with Aloe Investments to supply the land for the 5MW solar power plant.

Namibia’s solar irradiation in general is unparalleled and its predictability higher than the standard as per the stability of the weather. Rosh Pinah Solar Farm’s estimated effective hours of irradiance is over 2649 kWh/kWp/year in P50 and 2553 kWh/kWp/year in P90. Expected annual array nominal energy (at STC efficiency) will be 18,354 MWh, while energy injected to the grid will aggregate 15102 kWh as per losses due to irradiance level, temperature, ohmic wiring losses and inverters losses among others.

Financial Proposal The investment requirement is N$163 Million (approximately USD10.5 Million). This amount will go towards the construction of the plant, capital and equipment. The project is financially viable with debt cover ration in excess of 1,28 times. Equity contribution of 25%. The balance of 75% can then be funded by external senior debt.

Manufacturing
Project Title Otavi Rebar Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd
Project Owner / Promoter Otavi Rebar Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd
Location Otavi ( North of Namibia)
Project Objectives & Description The company, Otavi Rebar Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd (ORM) was founded in 2012 and commenced with the development of a feasibility study to establish a reinforcing steel bar (rebar) manufacturing plant in Otavi. ORM intends to establish a 148,000 ton per annum rebar manufacturing plant based on Danieli technology. Danieli Morgardshammer is an Italian company and is ranked amongst the top 3 suppliers of steelmaking plant and equipment in the world.
Opportunity

Reinforcing steel bars are used for reinforcement of concrete structures and the manufacturing of roof anchor bolts used in underground mining.

There is no rebar manufacturing facility in Namibia and all rebar used in the country has to be imported. In 2014 the market for rebar in Namibia was estimated at 155,000 tons and the demand is projected to grow in excess of 9% per annum in line with the projected growth in infrastructure and construction projects.

The price of rebar is determined to a large extent by the supply of rebar from South African mills and distributed by the larger steel merchants that have a presence in South Africa and Namibia, such as Macsteel as well as local merchants, such as Steeledale Reinforcing and Trading Namibia.

A local rebar producer such as ORM will have a geographic advantage over the importers of rebar due to the high cost of transportation. ORM intends to distribute their rebars to steel merchants and steel reinforcing structure manufacturers by using Otavi Steel Logistics, an associated company, private transporters as well as rail. Otavi is situated at a rail junction for railroads traversing Namibia north to south and east to west.

Technical Proposal

The proposed steel processing plant will be established in Otavi, Namibia. Danieli Morgardshammer was selected as a preferred original equipment manufacturer to supply the technology for the plant. The raw materials required for the production of rebars will be acquired in the form of scrap metals sourced from various areas within Namibia as well as from neighbouring countries as well as on the international market. The production process can also use billets that are readily available on the open market.

An associated company will be appointed by Otavi Rebar Manufacturing to coordinate the supply logistics. A contract has been signed with the technology supplier (Danieli Morgardshammer, from Italy). Land has been secured for the project site on the outskirts of Otavi.

Electricity supply will be provided directly from Nampower at ORM cost.

Financial Proposal The total funding is N$3 865 billion. The funds will be utilised for the establishment of the rebar manufacturing plant and its associated utilities and services. Initial losses will be covered by a medium term bank loan of N$405 million. The founders of the company will inject share capital of NS 1 000 million.
Proposed Deal Structure The projected investment in the rebar manufacturing plant is estimated at just under N$3, 3 billion of which the project promoters has contributed N$1,0 billion. The owners are seeking investment and/or loan finance to the value of N$2, 3 billion. The ROI is projected at 12% over a 10 year period. Return on Equity peaks at 20% over the same period, assuming a 50% dividend policy.

Opportunity

The main users of multiwall paper bags are the cement industry, maize and flower mills, sugar mills, potato producers and adhesive manufacturers. Kaptau will initially target the cement industry and is already in an advanced stage of trials and negotiations with Ohorongo Cement in Otavi, which is the country’s only cement manufacturer and uses 45 000 bags per day. Ohorongo Cement supplies the Namibian and export markets. A second cement manufacturer, Cheetah Cement, plans to start operations in Otjiwarongo, about 430km from the Kaptau factory.

After the cement industry, Kaptau will target potential customers:

  • Henning Crusher – this company uses 50 000 bags/day for tile adhesives packaging.
  • Namib Mills – this company uses 120 000 bags/day for flour and sugar packaging.
  • Bokomo Namibia – using 25 000 bags/day for flour packaging.
  • AMTA – using 110 000 bags/day for potatoes packaging.

All these buyers serve the construction and food industries, which grow with the population increases. Kaptau is located relatively close to these buyers; they will be in a position to provide a superior customer service, faster delivery times and better prices compared to competing suppliers. Competitors include Nampak (South Africa), Pyramid (Botswana) and Dy-Pack (Germany).

Technical Proposal

The shareholders have used N$7.5 million of their own funds to procure the required machinery, a 3000 plot for a new factory building, raw materials and initial working capital. The machinery procured includes: Flexographic Printer, Auxiliary Paper Feeding Machine, Tube Converting Machine, two Creasing Machines, two Gluing Machines, two Flattening Machines, Slitting Machine, Perforating Machine and a Mobile Crane.

This plant can produce bags with a powder capacity from 500g to 50kg each and has a capacity of 150 million multiwall bags pa. To ensure continuous production, the company keeps five spares of every part that could break in stock.

A 200m2 building is currently being rented for the operations; however, it is inadequate in size from an operational perspective. Since inception, Kaptau has trained 4 Machine Operators and 3 Senior Technicians and ran a number of trials for Ohorongo Cement. Ohorongo and Kaptau are at an advanced stage of finalizing a supply agreement.

Financial Proposal Total funding required is N$20.7 million. The shareholders have invested own capital of N$7.5 million to procure the machinery, land for a factory building and working capital to train people and to do trial runs for a big customer.
Proposed Deal Structure The shareholders are seeking investors to inject N$13.5 million for 30% share in the company, (Although some trial runs are being done, commercial production has not started and therefore it will be regarded as a Greenfield project by funders.
