Power generation company, Egenco has said a K40 billion expansion program deal with a Japanese firm, Mitsubish to add 18 megawatts on the Malawi power grid.
Egenco chief executive officer William Liabunya said the two companies made the agreement in 2015 only that the expansion program was delayed because it was awaiting the government to pump in K3.6 billion as per the agreement.
“The government of Japan was ready but the money from the government of Malawi delayed the rolling of the project,” he said.
He said the expansion program would be done at Tedzani which produces 350 megawatts against a demand of 400 megawatts.
In addition, Liabunya said, Egeco commissioned diesel generated gen sets which produces 10 megawatts which is as added on the grid.
