Transalloys is a producer of silicon manganese. It proposed a coal plant of either 55 MW or 150 MW near its smelter complex in Mpumalanga province to provide electricity. The EIA was submitted in May 2015, and stated the company's preference for a 55MW plant, although both options are assessed.[1]

A coal plant of 55 MW was approved in March 2016 for a period of five years, or until March 2, 2021.[2]

In June 2019, Transalloys submitted an amended EIA for the project for a coal plant of 120 to 150 MW.[2][3]

A Motivation Report and additional authorization documentation related to the proposal appear to have been open to the public for comment from February 19, 2021 to March 23, 2021.[4]
