Hwange Colliery Company Limited (HCCL) has signed two 25-year coal supply agreements with the Zimbabwe Power Company and Lusulu Power, an independent power producer in Matabeleland North.


The company’s managing director Engineer Thomas Makore said during a media briefing in Hwange on Wednesday that the agreements were part of initiatives to support and sustain the colliery’s turnaround strategy.


“We have already entered into a 25-year coal supply agreement with the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) so we are in the process of finalising contract with the successful bidder for the exploration and thereafter we then go into the mine development phase,” he said.


He said the company had also signed another coal supply agreement with an Independent Power Producer (IPP) called Lusulu Power, which will be based at Mlibizi.”


Eng Makore said the two initiatives were part of a turnaround strategy that the company had embarked on.


“The agreements require that we supply 200 000 tonnes of coal per month to each of the two companies,” said the HCCL boss.


In 2015, the Government granted the company three new concessions in Western Area, Lubimbi East and West following concerns that HCCL’s present concessions were running out.
