Maamba Collieries Limited plans to develop Maamba Power Station in Southern Province, Zambia. The power station was proposed by Maamba Collieries Limited (MCL), the largest coal mining company in Zambia. The station would be mine-mouth and fueled by low grade coal, a by-product of mining at MCL's Maamba mine. The first 150 MW Unit is scheduled to be completed by October 2014. In 2011, MCL appointed SEPCO Electric Power Construction Corp (China), a large supplier of power generating plants, substations, and transmission lines, for implementation of the power project. The power will be sold to Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (ZESCO) Limited. In a March 2014 investor presentation Nava Bharat stated that the 300 MW power station would include a 50 kilometre long transmission line line. The company stated that it had entered into a Power Purchase Agreement with Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation. The 300 MW plant is planned for operation by 2016. On May 1, 2016, the project was reported as 90% completed, with unit 1 planned for commissioning. Units 1 was commissioned in July with commercial operation planned to begin shortly after.
