Edenville Energy PLC said Oct. 9 that it signed an initial two-year deal to supply 3,500 tonnes per month of a specialized coal product from the Rukwa project in Tanzania.
The agreed pricing for the supply of coal to an industrial customer operating in East Africa is based on local commercial rates, and the customer responsible for transporting the coal from the mine gate. Edenville has been working with the customer to create a product suitable for its operations and has been supplying test batches of coal.
There will be an option for the customer to increase the contract to 6,000 tonnes per month.
CEO Rufus Short said the deal constituted the company's largest single contract to date. "With this contract, we now have in excess of 8,000 tonnes per month of regular orders and are busy implementing the expansion plans at site."
The deal complements two prior coal supply deals for up to 4,000 tonnes per month signed in August and an initial 300 to 500 tonnes of coal per month to industrial groups operating in East Africa signed earlier this month.
