Zimbabwe: ZPC increases Harare power output

Issue 339 - 02 Feb 2017 | 1 minute read

Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) spokeswoman Fadzai Chisveto has confirmed that the Harare coal power plant is now producing 40MW, up from 25MW. The improvement follows the return to service of a turbo-alternator on 2 November 2016, meaning the plant now has two operating turbo-alternators. The project was delayed by the dispatch of a rotor from India. More work is planned. “The power station, which is now generating 40MW from TA1 [turbo-alternator], TA2, and two boilers, is expecting another increase in power generation to 60MW after the third boiler is completed,” the Financial Gazette reported Chisveto as saying.
