OVERVIEW: KIBO The Big Picture
Intervention business will supply power to UK grid at pinch points
  • Kibo Energy PLC (LON:KIBO) has power generation assets in the UK and Africa

  • Company is expecting to publish DFS on Benga project in Mozambique shortly

  • Building a presence in UK intervention market 


What it is developing

Two thermal coal power projects in Botswana (Mabesekwa) and Mozambique (Benga).

A UK focused flexible energy portfolio (MAST)

Advanced coal-to-power project in Tanzania (Mbeya).

Katoro Gold (57.6%), separately listed on AIM and a gold explorer with two gold projects in Tanzania


How is it doing

At Benga (Kibo 65%) the company is now working on finalising the coal supply agreement and power purchase agreement with private off-takers.

Mabesekwa (85%) is at the feasibility stage, following the completion of a mining scoping study, which highlighted a 30-year life of mine, and a power pre-feasibility study indicating maximum power capacity of 600 megawatts (MW) based on a coal delivery rate of 3.2mln tonnes a year.

Mast (60%) has identified various "shovel ready" sites capable of sustaining gas-fired power generators and ancillary structures from 20Mw upwards with the acquisition of first sites expected shortly.

In Tanzania, Mbeya has been knocked by the decision by state electricity group TANESCO not to buy any power produced at the power station. Kibo is now looking to private off-takers and export markets for Mbeya.


What the boss says

“We have four key projects which we are developing in parallel: two thermal coal power projects in Botswana and Mozambique, a UK focused flexible energy portfolio and an advanced coal-to-power project in Tanzania.

"Each holds significant value, which I don't believe is reflected in the current share price”





Inflection points

  • The definitive feasibility study at Benga to be published after the company received a report earlier than expected in March

  • Power purchase agreements signed for Benga

  • First sites acquired for MAST generators
