Update On Power Supply Situation Following Technical Fault At Hwange Power Station

Update On Power Supply Situation Following Technical Fault At Hwange Power Station

The Acting Minister of Energy and Power Development, Jenfan Muswere has announced some units that had been affected by a technical fault at the Hwange Power Station are now working again. The technical fault that was reported last week resulted in limited electricity supply in the national grid. Pindula News presents Muswere’s statement.

UPDATE ON POWER SUPPLY SITUATION BY HON. DR. JENFAN MUSWERE (ACTING MINISTER OF ENERGY AND POWER DEVELOPMENT)

Following the technical challenges that have been affecting our generation units at the Hwange Power Station, I am pleased to announce that there is a return of service of some units that had been affected by a technical fault at the Hwange Power Station.  The technical team and management have been making concerted efforts to bring normalcy and enhance sustained generation. Most of the Units are back at Hwange with Bulawayo, Munyati and Harare power stations also contributing to the national grid.

Furthermore, operations at the Kariba South Hydro Power Station are stable as all the units are now back in service following the recovery from a regional power system disturbance that resulted in a loss of interconnection across the region in the past week. The   power shortage has been further exacerbated by the shortage of imports from the region as some utilities are also experiencing similar power deficits.

Accordingly, the power utility will further reduce load shedding and consumers are advised to use the available power sparingly to minimize the prospects of load shedding. 

We would like to thank all stakeholders for their patience and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Hon. Dr. Jenfan Muswere (15/11/21)
