The Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) intends to recruit more than 100 workers on a fixed term contract of up to 36 months for the Hwange Thermal Power Station expansion project.
The expansion of Unit 7 and 8 is expected to produce an additional 600 megawatts. The two units will each generate 300MW of electricity to be fed into the national grid while raising Hwange Power Station’s installed capacity to 1 520MW from the current 920MW. Said ZPC:
The company is now on the execution stage of the 600MW Hwange Power Station expansion project. We are therefore inviting suitably qualified and motivated persons for the various vacant positions of the project that have arisen on a fixed term contract basis of up to 36 months.
ZPC indicated that from the 27 positions that have been created, the project requires engineers in areas such as mechanical, electrical, control and instrumentation, quality and risk as well as other administrative jobs that include logistics. The project will be undertaken by Sino Hydro of China and will take 42 weeks to complete.
