The Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) has said it has restored the three units that had been taken out of service at Kariba South Hydro Power Station.
The development comes as the country has been facing acute load shedding attributed to faults at the country’s major power generators. Pindula News presents the statement issued by ZESA on the development:
UPDATE ON THE RESTORATION OF POWER SUPPLY
ZESA Holdings would like to advise its valued customers countrywide that the 3 units that were taken out of service at Kariba South Hydro Power station to facilitate urgent dam wall rehabilitation works have since been returned to service.
The return to service of the units has restored 450MW of power supply to the national grid thus significantly reducing the power supply gap that had increased load shedding. Furthermore, we wish to advise all stakeholders that the rehabilitation works have been temporarily shelved until 05 January 2022 in order to minimize load shedding during the festive season.
Consumers are urged to use available power sparingly to minimize the effects of shedding. The inconvenience caused is sincerely regretted.
