Zimbabwe has had its fair share of energy challenges but is now set to install a solar energy system at all of the country’s airports to ensure an uninterrupted power supply.
Zimbabwe’s Energy and Power Development Minister, Advocate Fortune Chasi, said
that airports were a key infrastructure and their power supply should
be guaranteed. This could only be ensured by harnessing solar energy.
basic idea is that airports are a key national installation and we have
to have a situation where there is an assurance that there won’t be any
power outage there,” said Chasi. “If there is going to be an outage [at
airports], it could seriously compromise on safety as well as cause a
serious dent on tourism.”
Chasi added that announcements about which company would undertake
the project, as well as its commencement and completion dates, would be
made in due course.
