Work at the Kariba South Hydro Power station project expected to increase another 300 megawatts capacity to the national grid by March 2018 is progressing well.

Sinohydro Corporation deputy general manager Mr Wangjian revealed work is on course at the Kariba Hydro Power Station adding his company will invest US$176 million as equity to the Hwange 7 and 8 thermal power expansion project that is expected to add 600 megawatts to the national grid.

Zimbabwe is currently facing power supply shortages a situation that has driven the power utility ZESA Holdings through its subsidiary ZETDC to resort to power imports as a mitigation measure to close the gap between local supply and demand.

Government has prioritised energy projects as part of the ZIMASSET economic blueprint to increase power supplies and energy security.
