Units 7 and 8 of the Hwange Power Station Expansion Project (2×335 MW), which is the largest thermal power station in Zimbabwe, built by SINOHYDRO, were recently honored with the "Excellent Contribution Award" by the Zimbabwe Power Company.
As Zimbabwe's largest infrastructure initiative in nearly 30 years, the project has been closely watched by the leaders of China and Zimbabwe since the project agreements were signed. It is also the first investment-construction-operation integration project undertaken by SINOHYDRO in Africa.
During construction, SINOHYDRO had to overcome a variety of challenges and successfully achieved significant project milestones, including the grid connection and power generation of Units 7 and 8, as well as a continuous 168-hour full-load trial operation. These accomplishments have earned high praise for SINOHYDRO from the Zimbabwean government and the project owners.
The Hwange Power Station now meets 50 percent of Zimbabwe's national electricity demand, significantly alleviating electricity shortages throughout the country. It has not only provided thousands of jobs for local people, but also improved the standard of living for residents, contributing to Zimbabwe's rapid economic development.
