Zimplats Mulls Plans To Build 160MW Solar Power Plant
Zimplats Holdings says it is mulling plans to build a 160MW solar power station to guarantee constant electricity supplies for its operations.
With the country experiencing a huge electricity deficit due to low generation at Kariba power station, among other factors, the mining industry has been negatively impacted.
In an emailed response to questions from The Herald, Zimplats said:
Zimplats is investigating the possibility of establishing a 160MW solar power station in an effort to ensure affordable, uninterrupted power supply to our operations and support the Government’s thrust on industrial linkages.
The company through its technical partners is conducting a feasibility study which will determine the total project cost, scope, risk, funding strategy and timelines for completion.
