Swazi Coal power station was a proposed 400-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland).
The map below shows Eswatini, where the plant would be built.
In 2009 it was reported that South African-based company South Ocean Holdings was discussing the possibility of buying coal and building a 400 MW power station in Swaziland. The project would be in collaboration with the government through the Swaziland Investment and Promotions Authority (SIPA).
However, there has been little info about the project since the announcement, and it appears to be abandoned.
