One of the newly Commissioned Weed Harvester

The newly commissioned Weed Harvesters will go a long way in improving the generation of hydro-electricity power in the county. The weed harvesters are used to remove aquatic weeds, mainly Namasupuni, at Liwonde in order to ensure that the weeds do not reach the Power Stations (Nkula, Tedzani and Kapichira) cascaded downstream of Shire River and damage machines.

The new weed harvesters add to the existing weed management equipment, which has been in operation for 13 years. The procurement of two new harvesters, a shore conveyor and two tipper trucks under the $350.7 MCC Malawi compact will improve the weed harvesting operations by EGENCO. This new equipment has increased the harvesting capacity, reduced downtime and improved the disposal volume and processes
