President Mugabe has officially commissioned the construction of Kariba South Power Station project expected to generate an additional 300MW.

The project is being constructed by Chinese company Sinohydro at a cost of $533m. It is expected to ease power shortages in the country upon completion in 2017.

“The project entails the construction of an additional two 150MW power generating units, to the current six 125MW generating units. This increases the total capacity at Marina Hydro Power Station from 750MW to 1050MW. This additional capacity will serve the peak demand, significantly reducing the load shedding that we are currently experiencing,” said President Mugabe.

He said the project will not merely  help bring power into homes and workplaces, but will empower the people of Zimbabwe.
