Edenville Energy, the company developing a coal project in southwest Tanzania, has reported the commissioning and testing of the wash plant at the company’s Rukwa coal project site has now been completed and the plant is producing washed coal for sale.
The wash plant is now processing material to fulfil requests for coal that have already been made. Management expects production levels to increase over the coming months and are currently targeting production of at least 10 000 tpm by January 2018. A range of sizes of washed coal will be produced to allow the product to meet specific end user requirements.
Rufus Short, Edenville CEO, commented: “The start of production of washed coal is a major milestone for Edenville. It is just over eight months since we decided to proceed with development of the Rukwa Coal Project and I am delighted that we have been able to move into production so quickly, despite some challenges along the way.
“We look forward to providing further updates on the progress of the project in the coming weeks, including with regard to coal sales and contracts,” Short concluded.
