Tanzania: Sepco III to build Mbeya transmission line
Chinese contractor Sepco III has been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build the transmission line that will connect Kibo Mining’s 300MW integrated coal project to the Mbeya substation. Sepco III was conditionally awarded the EPC contract for the power plant in December 2016 in return for Sepco III refunding half of the development costs. Protracted negotiations for a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco) are well advanced, according to Kibo.
