Afrox operates in Zambia and ten other African countries, managing operations in five more on behalf of the parent company, The Linde Group.
The name INDENI was made by joining the names INDECO and ENI Group of Companies of Italy.
Located in Ndola, on the Copperbelt province of Zambia, the refinery began operations in June 1973. It is supplied by a 1700Km Crude Oil Pipeline from Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania. INDENI has a design capacity of 1,100,000 MT per year at 77.5 % Crude Oil and 22.5 % others.
Though the Corporation traces its origins to 1906 when a small thermal station was established in Livingstone to serve a small section of the town, ZESCO Limited was formed in 1970 after the Zambia Electricity Supply Act was passed in Parliament.
The Act brought together the electricity undertakings that were previously managed by the local authorities.
In 1994, the name of Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation Limited was changed to ZESCO Limited. This was to reflect the recommitment to providing a high quality of customer service.
