Zesco starts transformer installation in Lusaka

General News Zesco starts transformer installation in Lusaka

ZESCO yesterday started installation works of the US$3.2 million Leopards Hill sub-station transformer that was gutted last year, company director of customer services Joe Chiyassa said.

Mr Chiyassa said in a statement in Lusaka that commissioning of the transformer would result in the reduction of load-shedding currently experienced by customers in Lusaka by 50 per cent.

“Zesco has commenced installation works. The installation works, testing and commissioning period is four weeks effective Monday January 11, 2010,” Mr Chiyassa said.

He said the transformer, that was procured to replace the one which was gutted, arrived on the site on January 8.

The transformer arrived in the country through the Chirundu One-Stop border on December 21 last year. However, its transportation to Leopards Hill suffered a setback when the truck transporting it broke down in Chirundu.
