Diesel generators the answer to power constraints for Zambia's mines?

Southern Africa Power Pool (SAPP) is a network of countries that have a connected transmission and distribution grid. Of the total power in the Southern Africa Power Pool South Africa has the majority of the generating capacity.  With South Africa's current electricity woes the Southern Africa Power Pool is currently experiencing an electricity shortfall. Zambia is planning to cut 30% of its electricity supply to mines. This will have a significant impact on mine productivity levels.

Diesel generators provide a power solution that can be deployed rapidly to keep Zambian mining operations running.

Barloworld Power through its offices in Kitwe, Zambia has a wealth of experience in supplying Cat generator sets to mines. To speak to a sales expert  visit or if in South Africa contact Grant Kirchmann on 011 045 6220
