Kibo Energy PLC, the multi-asset energy company, has announced an update on its Benga power plant project in Mozambique.
The company is advancing the development of its 65%-owned Benga power plant project in joint venture with Mozambique energy company Termoeléctrica de Benga S.A, with a view to constructing and operating a 150 - 300 MW coal-fired power plant with feedstock provided by regional coal producers. In line with this, the company has presented the definitive feasibility study (DFS) for the project to the Ministry of Energy and EDM, Mozambique's publicly owned electricity company. Additionally, under the terms of the existing MoU, power purchase agreement (PPA) discussions with EDM continue to progress as do those with potential private off-takers.
Louis Coetzee, CEO of Kibo, said: “Working in Mozambique has been notably straightforward as evidenced by the timely advancement of Benga which is currently advancing well ahead of the company’s development schedule for the project. The project is gaining increasing recognition as a notable energy project in Mozambique and the support and feedback we have received on the project so far is highly encouraging. We look forward to updating the market further on our progress including negotiations on the PPA.”
