Tlou’s managing director, Tony Gilby said: “This joint venture, which includes significant investors in Africa, validates our decision to choose IPC as our power development partner for the IPP Project. 

“We look forward to working closely with IPC to develop our IPP Project in Botswana into commercial operation and to developing discussions with QG Power Africa on this as an investment opportunity for them.”

The IPP project is a potential 100Mw coal bed methane-fuelled power station to be jointly developed by IPC and Tlou on its Lesedi CBM project in Botswana.

Tlou and IPC have received a proposal request from the Botswana government to build the station.

IPC (and its funding partners) are to handle the power generation side and access, while Tlou commercialises the gas resources.

QG Power Africa, the subsidiary of Quantum Global that has signed the partnership with IPC, has already identified Botswana as an area where it sees development opportunities.

Tomé International is an engineering consultancy focused on large civil engineering projects.

Shares in Tlou rose 2% to 6.1p.
