Christiaan Schutte, who has served as a non-executive director at the company since 2013, will manage engineering, procurement, construction, operations and management process at the project, which is due to complete in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Before joining the firm, Shutte managed five coal-fired power stations as a senior general manager of the generation division at Eskom, South Africa’s state-backed electricity firm.
“Chris is uniquely positioned to drive key technical processes with his in-depth knowledge of the project and experience operating some of the largest coal-fired power plants on the continent”, Hanno Pengilly, Ncondezi’s chief executive said in a statement.
The company also said it has appointed Pimlico Advisory to provide investor relations services.
In early trading on Tuesday, Ncondezi shares were steady at 5.4p.
