Coal Plant Construction Kicks Off

June 19 , 2021

The Sunshine Investment Group has begun the construction of a 600 million Br coal washing plant in the Gurage Zone, bringing with it the potential to save over 65 million dollars a year that would otherwise be spent on the import of coal. Sun Mining Coal Factory, which sits on 23.3ht of land, will have the capacity to wash and process 800,000tn of coal annually once it goes operational, which it is expected to do in a year's time. The plant will require one million tonnes of unwashed coal a year and it will be sourcing the raw material from a coal mining site and coal miners' associations in the Gurage Zone. Ethiopia spends over 200 million dollars annually on importing coal for cement production and energy generation.
