Hwange Colliery Company Limited (HCCL) has signed two 25 year coal supply agreements with Zimbabwe Power Company and Lusulu Power, an independent power producer in Matabeleland North.

The two initiatives that will see the company supplying more than 200 000 of coal per month to each of the above mentioned companies are part of the turnaround strategy that the company has embarked on.

“We have already entered into a 25 year coal supply agreement with two companies and we are in the process of finalising contracts,” says Hwange Colliery managing director Mr Thomas Makore.

In 2015, the government granted the company three new concessions in the western area, Lubimbi east and west following concerns that HCCL’s present concessions were running out.
