Zambia's CEC to restore full power to Glencore's Mopani Copper Mines

LUSAKA, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Zambian electricity utility Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC) and Glencore’s Mopani Copper Mines have reached an agreement to restore full power supply to the mine from Wednesday, the president’s office said.

Details of the agreement, which was facilitated by the government, will be finalised over a six-week period, presidential spokesman Amos Chanda said in a statement.

CEC, which buys power from the state-owned electricity company and sells it to mines, cut supply to Mopani to 94 megawatts (MW) from 130 MW after a dispute over new tariffs. (Reporting by Chris Mfula; Editing by David Goodman)
