Brian H M Makungo, a Training Manager at Kafue Gorge Regional Training Centre, will facilitate a workshop on developing operational skills to operate and maintain hydropower plants at Hydropower Africa 2010 on Monday, 16th August at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg.
Increase productivity and ensure a speedy return on training investment
An organisation can maintain its competitive edge by investing in its most valuable asset — its employees. Although training is often perceived as a cost, not an investment, experience has also shown that organisations can improve on-the-job performance and increase their bottom line through workforce development strategies.
Developing operational skills has capacity to increase productivity and ensure a speedy return on training investment. The consequences of poorly trained maintenance and operations personnel, such as extended downtime and unsafe acts, could be astronomical.

Increasing demand
Worldwide, hydropower plants produce about 24% of the world’s electricity and supply more than one billion people with power. Africa’s hydropower potential has remained largely undeveloped.

The recent past has seen increased investment in mining and other sectors of industry in Africa, which has resulted in increased demand for electricity to the extent that the available capacity to supply reliable electricity has been outstripped. This has prompted the rehabilitation of existing power stations to improve efficiency and accelerated development of new stations. Consequently, the need to invest in skilled manpower to manage the new stations, once commissioned, has become more apparent.
