Malawi’s Electricity Generating Company (EGENCO) has announced that it has shut down it’s Tedzani IV for maintenance works.
Following the development, Malawians should brace for more blackouts for the next five days, as announced by EGENCO.
The EGENCO Statement added that the available diesel power generators will be used to supplement hydropower.
Tedzani IV provides 19.1 megawatts of electricity to the national grid.
This follows government’s decision not to renew contract with Aggreko Power Solutions Limited which used to supply the country with diesel-powered electricity before the contract ended on April 1, 2022.
