The Tanzanian government wants to add another 600 megawatts of coal power capacity to the country’s electricity grid, and state-owned TANESCO has invited submissions from interested companies.

In today’s statement, Louis Coetzee, Kibo Energy’s CEO commented: "Given that much of the information within this 535-page document had already been generated, we just needed to ensure that its collation complied with TANESCO's revised November 2018 requirements.”

He added: “With this now complete and having recently been recommended for the grant of a Special Mining Licence from the Mining Commission of Tanzania, we remain hopeful that 2019 will see the swift advancement of the MCPP in tandem with our two other utility-scale projects in Botswana and Mozambique."
