Zimbabwe Issues Power Licenses to Essar, Nyangani, Herald Says

June 20 (Bloomberg) -- The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority has issued licenses to Essar Africa Holdings, China Africa Sunlight (Pvt) Ltd. and Nyangani Renewable, the state-controlled Herald reported, citing ZERA Chief Executive Officer Gloria Magombo.

Essar Africa plans a 600-megawatt power plant that will be commissioned in 2016, the Harare-based newspaper reported. China Africa will build a 120-megawatt generator by 2014, while Nyangani’s 3.8-megawatt plant may begin operations in 2013, the Herald said.

Zimbabwe has issued 16 licenses to generate electricity since 2010, it reported. If built, the 16 license-holders would generate a combined 5,000 megawatts of power, it said.
