The mast was launched on 1 November at a ceremony presided over by energy minister Matthew Nkhuwa. Mphepo plans to develop the Unika I wind farm in a public-private partnership with the Ministry of Energy with the support of the Office for Promoting Private Power Investment and state utility Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation.
