Notice Board – Sustainable Swaziland 35MW biomass plant

35MW BIOMASS PLANT AND COMMUNITY FORESTRY PROJECT IN SWAZILAND

Sustainable Swaziland – investment opportunity

Montigny holds 60 000 Ha. of FSC Certified Plantations. The company is currently in the process of agreeing partners to take the project from pre-feasibility to bankable feasibility and to invest in the plant’s construction and operations. Biomass from plantations and sawmills will power a 35 MW plant to be completed within 3 yrs. The plant can supply over 28% of Swaziland’s total electricity demand sustainably (displacing imported thermal power). The program will uplift the local economy by at least several hundred million Rand through job creation, increased local investment and a reduced reliance on imports. Montigny has signed an MoU with the Utility (SEC) and confirmed support from The Regulators.
