Edenville Energy has received proposals for construction of a 120 – 135 MW coal-fired power plant at its Rukwa coal-to-power site from a number of EPC groups, the company said in a recent new release, including an option for lower-cost near-term construction.

“Whilst the company’s Rukwa coal resource could support a larger power plant, it is currently envisaged that a plant in this range will be the best option to establish power generation in the shortest possible timescale,” the company said.

According to the company, work has centred on using off-the-shelf technology, using previous contracts to build similar-sized plants in other parts of the world and in East Africa as a basis.

“We are delighted by the support we are receiving from various EPC groups,” said Rufus Short, CEO of Edenville. “The extensive work that they have undertaken in conjunction with Edenville staff has validated the potential of our coal-to-power project.”

The company is now investigating the proposals to advance the project alongside the Tanzanian government, Short continued. The project has recently gone through an extensive review by the Tanzanian authorities and Edenville is “awaiting further directives from senior government representatives on how they wish to proceed with the power development.”
