ZESA gears up for World Cup

zesaHARARE - Load shedding is set to be reduced at the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA), following the installation of additional units.

With June being both the World Cup month and the height of Winter, the power company has increased its power generating capacity at Hwange Power Thermal Station (HPS) to 460 megawatts.

“For the last week we have been running four units. Three from stage one (refurbished under the ZESA/NamPower deal) and the other one from stage two.

We hope to increase the number of units to five by the end of this month. The increase of units means there will be shortening in terms of the demand and supply gap thus easing load shedding. With winter, the World Cup and winter cropping we do not want to fail our clients,” said Eng Rafemoyo, the CEO of ZESA.
