Geita Mine 60 MW Power Station
Sub-Saharan AfricaOctober 22, 2020
K&M advised Ashanti Goldfields, Ltd on the due diligence of a 60 MW facility in the Geita region of Tanzania to support new mining operations that Ashanti planned in the region. The project included a potential small distribution network that could include sales to other surrounding mines in the region that were self-generating. This project was a first of its kind for Tanzania given its size compared to total install generation and its planned interaction with the national grid. K&M’s due diligence included the regulatory regime, electricity market, plant siting, fuel supply and transportation, and accessibility to the national transmission grid.
