Zimbabwe STARTS regional power exports, mainly to neighbour Namibia

ZIMBABWE has started exporting electricity to regional countries especially Namibia, buoyed by increased production at the Kariba Power Station which came into life in March last year.

President Mnangagwa commissioned Unit 7 and 8, which were constructed at a cost of $531 million by China’s Sinohydro, resulting in an additional 300MW into the national grid. The Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) has confirmed that the new project has resulted in the country generating above target and exporting the excess power to NamPower, Namibia’s power utility company.
