Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) acting managing director Joshua Chirikutsi has expressed concern over progress at a 100MW solar PV project near Gwanda. The utility made a controversial $5.6m early payment earlier this year for the project, which is being developed by Intratrek Zimbabwe and China’s Chint Electric. Local media report that Chirikutsi told the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy that, “so far from the works done [Intratrek managing director Wicknell Chivayo] cannot account for $1.8m. We are really worried”.
