Kibo Energy PLC confirmed on Friday that it has resubmitted the tender qualification document to the Tanzania Electricity Supply Company (TANESCO) with regards to the Mbeya Coal to Power Project (MCPP).
The AIM-listed multi-asset, Africa-focused, energy company announced on November 7 that the African country’s coal power projects tender process has resumed having briefly halted the process five days earlier, which had spooked some investors.
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."
