South African forestry firm completes feasibility study for 20MW cogen plant

A feasibility study into the South African Forestry Company’s (Safcol’s) proposed 20-MW cogeneration project has been completed, with management and cofunders now expected to decide on the way forward for the project.
In October, Safcol had shortlisted three candidates to undertake the feasibility study, eventually awarding the contract to Jabenzi. The results of the feasibility sets out the resource available for a green energy project within the Sabie region, in Mpumalanga, a financial model, logistical requirements and recommended technologies. Safcol would now discuss the report with management and possible co-funders to decide on the way forward.

Safcol had earlier determined that the amount of wood waste, the anticipated waste from other sectors, such as agricultural waste, and municipal organic waste, could allow it to produce about 20 MW of electricity, but final determinations would still have to be made.
