Beyond conventional thinking

OPERATIONS

Delmas Coal

A mechanised underground coal mine that produces and processes about 2 million tonnes per annum. All of the coal – some of which is beneficiated to 24,0 Mj/kg – is consumed by the domestic market.

PROJECT LAUNCH:

For the first time in South Africa a power plant was designed to have a limited environmental footprint whilst using lower grade coal directly from the adjacent Delmas Coal by conveyor mine (mouth of mine power plant).

CURRENT STATUS:

KiPower (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Kuyasa Mining (Pty) Ltd is planning on breaking soil in 2016 to begin the construction process of the 600 MW coal fired Independent Power Plant (IPP), which will consist of four 150 MW circulating fluidized bed (CFB) units and associated infrastructure to provide uninterrupted power via the existing Eskom grid to clients. Sorbent (limestone) will be fed together with the coal into the CFB boilers to reduce SOx and NOx emissions.

Situated approximately 20 km to the south east of Delmas in Mpumalanga Province of South Africa, the new IPP will feature optimal output through a zero effluent discharge plant, storing its waste (ash) in a composite lined facility.
