Zimbabwe launches $500-M power units


KARIBA, Zimbabwe: Energy-starved Zimbabwe on Thursday launched a $533-million project with China to scale up electricity generation at one of its major power plants in a bid to ease perennial energy woes. China’s Sino Hydro will build two additional units at the Kariba Power Station, 365 kilometers (230 miles) north of the capital, expected to add 300 megawatts to the national grid on completion in 2017. The Chinese government is providing $320 million towards the expansion deal.
