Hengye Electronics Indústria is an Angolan company tied back to the Chinese Hengye Group. The company has established itself in Luanda and developed a plant to produce water and electricity meters for the Angolan market. Located in the Special Economic Zone (ZEE), Hengye Electronics has taken advantage of the infrastructure and easy-to-access services the zone provides to become a leading actor for in-country manufacturing of metering systems. 

Current activities: Hengye is participating in a tender the Angolan government has launched as a call to procure electricity meters to the country.  

Production capabilities: Hengye has the manufacturing capability to build 500,000 prepaid low-voltage meters a year.
