  1. China to fund Zambian coal -fired power project

    A 300 MW coal-fired power project in Zambia is to be financed primarily by two Chinese banks. The $828m Maamba mining-and-power project will include structural work on Zambia’s biggest coal mine, owned by Maamba Collieries Ltd, as well as the construction of two 150 MW coal-fired power plants and a new transmission line. The project is planned for completion in 2016. The Bank of China and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) will provide $300m of the total funding, with $150 million provided by the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa and the Development Bank of Southern Africa, and a further $65m by a group of western banks including Standard Chartered and Barclays. Equity funding will be provided by Indian conglomerate Nava Bharat Ventures, which will own a 65 per cent stake in the project, and Zambian state-owned ZCCM Investment Holdings, which will own 35 per cent. “We expect that project financing in Africa will take a cue from this transaction of how deals can be structured covering multiple geographies, in the infrastructure space, which is the need of the hour in Africa,” GRK Prasad, executive director of Nava Bharat Ventures, was quoted as saying. Zambia’s power demand is set to double by 2020 to nearly 3 GW, with most of the demand coming from the copper mining industry which has been hobbled by a lack of sufficient power. In the news this week, the sector reportedly agreed to collectively reduce its electricity consumption by up to 15 per cent in order to alleviate power shortages caused by the nation's dwindling hydropower reserves. China's investment in Zambia was estimated at over $2.5bn in 2013.
