Zimbabwe: Thumbs-Up for Mutirikwi Mini-Hydro Power Plant

Work on a $13,5 million mini-hydro power plant on Lake Mutirikwi Dam is set to begin soon after Masvingo Rural District Council gave the green light.
Great Zimbabwe Hydro Power Company - a joint venture between a Zimbabwean firm ZOL and New Planet of South Africa -recently got permission from the Masvingo RDC to go ahead with the project that will generate five megawatts upon completion.

Masvingo RDC acting chief executive Mr Martin Mubviro last week said they were jointly managing the power generation project with the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (Zinwa).

Mr Mubviro said his council passed a resolution giving Great Zimbabwe Power Company permission to start work on the power plant.

"Zinwa will deal with the remaining issues that need to be sorted out before work on the plant can begin because we recently established that the land where the investors want to build their plant belongs to the water regulatory authority," he said.
