FQM at full power

NKOLE MULAMBIA, Ndola
ZESCO Limited has restored full power supply to First Quantum Minerals (FQM) Kansanshi Mines and the Sentinel project in North-Western Province.
FQM president Clive Newall said full power restoration was done last Thursday .
Mr Newall said in a statement issued yesterday that the decision follows the receipt of notice of the declaration of force majeure for the supply of electricity from Zesco to Kansanshi and the subsequent reduction in electricity supply to both Kansanshi and Sentinel as reported on July 27, 2015.
“While the company believes some restrictions may be re-imposed during the remainder of 2015, Zesco has stated that it has contracted independent power producers such as Maamba Collieries Limited and Itezhi-Tezhi Power Corporation through the signing of power purchase agreements to procure more electricity by the end of 2015,” he said.
