Kariba power station doubles electricity output

Kariba power station

The Kariba South power station, which is a 1 050MW hydroelectric power plant, has increased its generation capacity to 401 megawatts (MW) from around 200MW in previous weeks.

According to the latest Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) generation statistics published on 20 December 2022, Kariba has now doubled its power output.

The statistics show that Munyati is producing 17MW, Kariba 401MW, and Hwange 429MW; giving a total of 847MW.

However, the two small coal-fired power stations in Harare and Bulawayo were not generating anything.

Zimbabwe has been facing acute power shortages due to reduced power generation at Kariba caused by low water levels.

Kariba Hydro supplies around 70 percent of the country’s electricity.
