This project is currently in the final stages of the construction and commissioning of an εUCG pilot plant, which is scheduled to begin gas production in mid-2006. The pilot plant will provide for an initial generating capacity of approximately 6 MWe, which is sufficient to co-fire a single burner at Majuba power station. Pending the success of the pilot program, gas production will be scaled up to eventually provide 30% of the plant's fuel. At that stage, the εUCG facility will produce ca. 100PJ per annum to generate approximately 1,200 MWe of electricity.
