Tedzani Power Station comprises of three power plants; Tedzani I, II and III. Tedzani I was commissioned in 1972, Tedzani II was commissioned in 1976 and Tedzani III was commissioned in 1995. With time, the equipment at all the three power plants had become old, dilapidated, susceptible to frequent breakdowns and was no longer running at full capacity.
Therefore, EGENCO embarked on major rehabilitation works of its power plants at Tedzani Power Station aimed at modernizing the power plants, improving their reliability and increasing their useful lifespan.
Rehabilitation of Tedzani I & II started in 2018 but was put on hold to prioritize the rehabilitation of Tedzani III.
Tedzani III underwent rehabilitation in from August 2018 to November 2019. The project involved installing and commissioning a completely new control and SCADA system, new excitation, protection and synchronization systems, as well as repair and replacement works on turbines and generators.
In addition to the rehabilitation, the project also added 10MW, increasing the capacity of the power plants from 52MW to 62MW.
Upon completion of the rehabilitation of Tedzani III, rehabilitation works for Tedzani I and II power plants resumed in December 2020. The works involve…
All rehabilitation, modernization and upgrading works at Tedzani Power Station are solely funded by EGENCO. Tedzani III rehabilitation costed MK7.1 billion while Tedzani I & II costed MK6.1 billion.
