We are currently working on developing a 100 MW Geothermal Power Plant in Malawi. The proposed site is at Chiweta in Rumphi District. On December 7th 2016, we signed an MOU with the government of Malawi to this effect. We have acquired license from the government and ESCOM has agreed to buy power from us

 The project cost will be US$ 664M and the technology used will be Dual Flash. Dual Flash ensures that majority of the heat released is captured and converted into electricity. The government has also released detailed feasibility studies to us that they conducted and that was funded by the World Bank. According to this feasibility studies, Chiweta can produce up to 140MW of geothermal power. We have partnered with professional geologists as we begin to search for the best location to build the power plant. We have already started to compensate the communities living in this land. It is estimated that this project will be completed 18 months after the PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) is acquired.

Status
