Tanzania-focused miner Edenville Energy has agreed on a work programme with engineering, procurement, and construction company Runh Power to advance its Rukwa coal-to-power project during the first quarter of this year. The work programme sought to expand on Edenville’s Lahmeyer Rukwa power plant feasibility study from last year, aimed at generating a definitive technical study and financial model underpinning power purchase agreement (PPA) negotiations with the Tanzanian government and advancing financing options with suitable institutions. Meanwhile, the company reported that the mining licence application process was ongoing and had been placed on the Ministry of Energy and Minerals’ (MEM’s) Cadastre system with the status of “application recommended”.
