27 coal suppliers to Eskom announced


It has finally happened, after a long wait.

At least now the country has an idea of 27 companies that will be supplying coal to Eskom’s coal-fired power stations. Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has provided a list of the companies to Parliament.

The 27 companies named by the minister as suppliers are: Liketh Investments; Umcebo Mining; HCI Khusela Coal; Sudor Coal; Stuart Coal; Exxaro Coal; Keaton Mining; Kuyasa Mining; Shanduka Coal, whose interests held by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa are now held in a blind trust; Ntshovelo Mining Resources; Just Coal CC; African Exploration Mining & Finance Corporation, which is a state-owned mining company; Wescoal Mining; Hlagisa Mining; Perisat Investments; Universal Coal Development; Vunene; Optimum Coal Holdings; Iyanga; Lurco Coal; Anglo American Thermal Coal SA (Pty) Ltd; Anglo American Inyosi Coal; Becsa (BHP Billiton Energy Coal South Africa); BHP Billiton; Optimum Coal Holdings; Anglo/Exxaro JV; and Xstrata/African Rainbow Minerals JV, which has an interest by billionaire Patrice Motsepe.

However, Brown said she could not divulge the actual cost implications involved as the information was “is commercially sensitive (and) is subject to standard confidentiality clauses in the agreements with suppliers and thus the information cannot be disclosed without risk to Eskom with respect to litigation and leverage to continue negotiating for competitive pricing”.
