Zimplats to Construct Two Solar Projects to Power Mining Operations

Zimbabwe’s largest platinum producer, Zimplats, a subsidiary of Impala Platinum Holdings, has announced plans to build two solar power plants in the country’s Mashonaland West province with a combined power generation capacity of 185 MW.

The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority announced on the 26th of July that it had received applications from Zimplats for the construction of a 105 MW solar power plant to power the company’s Ngezi operations, southwest of Harare, and an 80 MW solar power plant to supply its Selous operations.

The application stipulates that energy produced would be for Zimplat’s own consumption, and that the company would own, operate, and maintain the solar projects, which comes as part of the company’s growth strategy in Zimbabwe.
