Zambia Halts Diesel Power Plants Construction

By Chatula Kangali

Government has halted the establishment of four temporary heavy oil power plants that are aimed at providing emergency power for the country due to financial constraints.

Energy and Water Development Permanent Secretary Emeldah Chola said this in an interview yesterday.

Brigadier General Chola said the project had been put on hold because the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) had not been signed due to financial constraints.
