ZESCO turbine rehabilitation
One of the turbines undergoing rehabilitation at Kafue Gorge Power Station. ZESCO Limited has often come under attack from the general for the load shedding being experienced in Zambia.
However, the complete rehabilitation works, which are expected to finish in December this year would help reduce the power cuts by a certain percentage.
Kafue Gorge contributes two thirds of Zambia's total energy output.
The power shortage in Zambia is expected to persist but according to Kafue Gorge Power station manager Masiye Mwale, the ultimate solution lies in erecting more power stations, an idea which the government and private sector participants are working on.
