DUBAI - Botswana's 1200 megawatt project to supply power domestically and to Eskom could start development work as soon as March.
A government official familiar with the project made the remark yesterday.
Officials are in price negotiations with the main potential customers and will move forward once a price has been set, Botswana's deputy permanent secretary Jacob AR Thamage said on the sidelines of a mining and exploration conference in Dubai.
"Financial closure is a moving target, but we are still aiming for March next year," Thamage said. "Our biggest challenge is coming to an agreement on the tariffs with our main off takers." - Reuters
