African Energy targets 300mw tender

Fast-rising energy developer, African Energy Resources, is preparing to throw its hat into the race to build and operate a 300-megawatt greenfield power station for the government, BusinessWeek has learnt.

Within a fortnight, government is expected to float a Request for Pre-Qualification for energy firms interested in developing the 300mw power station. The tender for the greenfield power station follows the one for a 300mw brownfield government released in mid-April.

By definition, the greenfield power station can be built anywhere in Botswana. It can conceivably be powered by any fuel source, while the brownfield is an extension of Morupule B station and is fired by coal. On Tuesday, African Energy Resources (AFR) became the first among several local energy developers to announce its intentions for the lucrative supply tenders. AFR holds coal resources of up to 2.5 billion tonnes at Sese, near Francistown and is advancing studies for both coal mining and electricity generation.
