Ansaldo Energia participates in addressing Zimbabwean power crisis

The Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) is running the rule over power equipment being provided for the development of an emergency power plant as the country tries to tackle its power crisis.

ZESA has sent engineers to Italy and India for due diligence on the company that will supply equipment for the construction of the 120 MW Mutare emergency power plant over the next 18 months.

Contract negotiations for the short-term project are expected to be concluded this week between the Zimbabwe Power Company and the contractor, Helcraw Electrical (Pvt) Ltd, and its principals Ansaldo Energia, the Italian power engineering company.

Reports also indicate ZESA is working on bringing in emergency power suppliers who generate electricity using diesel and gas.

The Mutare power plant, which will take just under 18 months to complete, would be powered by a dual mechanism that can either run on gas or diesel.
