In a notice on Friday, Gweru based Sino-Zimbabwe Cement Company (SZCC) said it will not be able to produce enough cement for the whole of October due to planned power cuts by Zesa.
SZCC said the planned interruption of supplies “in the whole month of October” will allow Zesa to carry out maintenance work on its 88kv Sherwood-Mvuma feeder, which supplies power to SZCC. Part of the notice by Sino-Zim reads:
Zesa will be cutting power supplies to SZCC for two days a week for the whole of October. These power supply interruptions will affect the production of cement at SZCC as well as all other processes that depend on power supply for their running. Without regular supply of electricity, SZCC is unable to produce and mill adequate cement for its customers.
The Chronicle could not get a comment from Zesa.
