POWER SUPPLY UPDATE

 

ZESA Holdings would like to advise its valued customers countrywide of the reduction in generation at Kariba Power Station due to depleted dam water levels, commencing on Tuesday 1st September 2015 at 1800hrs, in compliance with the Zambezi River Authority (ZRA) requirement to scale down on water consumption.

 

Generation will consequently be reduced from the normal 750MW to 475MW until dam levels have risen to the requisite levels.

 

During this period, the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) will take full advantage of the reduction of Units in service at Kariba to undertake the annual statutory maintenance, scheduled to be conducted between the 1st of September 2015 and 28 January 2016.

 

Whilst generation at thermal power stations is not affected by hydrological issues, Units at Hwange Power Station will also undergo statutory maintenance which will be completed by 7 October 2015, to ensure greater safety and reliability going forward.

 

The power utility further advises customers that the planned annual maintenance of Hwange and the reduction in water levels at Kariba dam will lead to changes being effected to the previously publicized load shedding schedule.

 

Consumers will experience suppressed power supplies until generation is brought back to normal levels.

 

Although the effects of load shedding will be minimized with possible power imports where available, ZESA Holdings urges consumers to use the available power very sparingly to minimize the extent and duration of load shedding.

 

ZESA Holdings sincerely apologises for the unavoidable inconvenience caused.
