Morupule Power StationEdit profile
Morupule Power Station is a coal-fired power station near Palapye, Botswana. Run by the Botswana Power Corporation (BPC), it comprises four 33 MW air-cooled units. It uses coal from the adjacent Morupule Colliery and provides about 80% of the country's domestic power generation.
After a successful feasibility study in 2004, the BPC will be installing a further four 100 MW coal-fired air-cooled units.
The first units are expected to come on line in 2009, followed by the next two units in 2010, while further expansion for the power station is planned for between 2013 and 2020, depending on the level of base-load power demand.
