first_imgNcondezi Energy delays planned 300MW coal plant in Mozambique FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Platts:Progress on the development of Ncondezi Energy’s flagship 300 MW coal-fired power project and coal mine in Tete, Mozambique, has been delayed, the African power developer said.The delay came after discussions with state power company Electricidade de Mocambique (EDM) indicated that available technical and market assumptions for a tariff agreement, which were initially submitted March 31, were out of date.The company said an updated transmission integration study and Mozambican power market outlook study had been commissioned, and were targeted for completion in the third quarter of 2020. Allowing for the completion of those independent studies, Ncondezi said the tariff agreement was now expected to be finalized in the second half of the year.“Based on this, the company has submitted an updated work program to EDM for review and will provide a more detailed timetable update to investors at the appropriate time,” Ncondezi Energy said.“Since the submission of a formal tariff offer earlier this year, the company has worked closely with EDM to discuss and agree the pathway to progress the project,” said CEO Hanno Pengilly. “With EDM’s guidance, the company has agreed to update its transmission integration study as well as conduct an independent market study for energy supply and demand forecasts in Mozambique and potential export markets.”Pengilly said the results of those studies should verify certain technical assumptions, and provide greater certainty around the business case for the project alongside the tariff proposal, facilitating negotiations on the project tariff. The results are also expected to be a key requirement from potential project lenders and investors.[Sarah Matthews]More: Ncondezi Energy delays flagship Mozambique coal power projectlast_img read more

Pelosi: ‘Pass Law So Sitting Presidents Can Be Indicted’

first_imgTalks of impeachment stem from the almost two-year investigation into Russian meddling in the US presidential election conducted by Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.The conclusion of the investigation then prompted calls by Democrats to change federal law after Mueller said his team never considered possible obstruction of justice charges against President Trump because of a long-standing Justice Department policy that precludes such an indictment.The issue has been brought back into the spotlight amid recent reports by a whistleblower within the intelligence community, alleging Trump had an “improper” conversation with a foreign leader.The conversation is reported to have been urging Ukraine to look into former Vice President Joe Biden, the current Democratic presidential front-runner for the 2020 election,  and his son Hunter Biden.Trump spoke out about the conversation and denied the allegations against him in a series of tweets on Saturday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi endorsed changing federal law to allow sitting presidents to be indicted in an interview with NPR on Friday.Pelosi added it would apply if he-or-she has engaged in wrongdoing but indicated that she was no closer to moving to impeach President Donald Trump.However, many Democrat lawmakers have called for the impeachment of President Trump.Related content:Nancy Pelosi: Trump is provoking Democrats to impeach him He also criticized Democrats for trying to start another “ridiculous Witch Hunt scheme.”Pelosi is the latest to take a swipe in the ongoing feud between her and President Trump.After the interview Friday, her office released an official statement indirectly accusing the president of hiding something.The two political figures have been long-time rivals who regularly disagree on policy.Tensions between the pair have intensified over the past year and seemingly become personal.last_img read more
