Minister of Energy and Power Development Advocate Fortune Chasi told ZBC today that refurbishment of Unit 6 at the same power station is starting the first week of September and it ill unlock an additional 170 megawatts to augment generation.
The Hwange Thermal Power Station is the biggest power plant in Zimbabwe with an installed capacity of 920 MW.
