The 800 million dollar Maamba thermal power plant project has reached pre-commissioning stage.
Maamba Thermal Power plant chief executive officer Venkat Shankar says the tests on the plant are going on smoothly with some adjustments being made to reach the required parameters.
Mr. Shankar has told ZNBC news in a telephone interview that all systems have been checked and found to be correct.
He has however not disclosed when the plant will fully start generating electricity for commercial use but was quick to state that the plant is close to doing so.
Mr. Shankar further said the tests on the plant have been going on for over a month now.
The Maamba Thermal Power Plant will start producing one hundred and 50 mega watt, which will be increased to 3 hundred mega watts.
