The Lesotho Highlands Development Authority (LHDA) on Wednesday said that Unit 1 of the ‘Muela power station has returned to service following a successful restoration.

The unit, which experienced an unexpected breakdown on June 18, 2022, has been fully repaired and is operational as of July 13, 2023.

“This significant achievement not only brings relief to LHDA but also fulfils the government of Lesotho's aim to provide access to energy for Basotho, and reduce the financial burden of electricity importation,” said LHDA CEO Tente Tente.

The team of highly skilled internal engineers and technicians meticulously dismantled both the turbine and generator, and finally, skilfully reassembled the entire turbine, shaft and generator, ensuring the smooth and successful restoration of the Unit, he continued.

The achievement represents a significant step forward in LHDA efforts to provide accessible and reliable energy for Lesotho.

With the full generation capacity of hydropower now restored, the ‘Muela power station will continue to play a vital role in providing clean, affordable and sustainable energy to the people of Lesotho, bolstering economic growth and improving the quality of life for citizens.
