The Korean owned Nabou Green Energy Limited plant is expected to resume operations in the coming months.
Minister for Infrastructure, Jone Usamate told Parliament today that the private business which began operations in 2017 ceased last year because of a lack of wood chips which fuels the plant.
Usamate further explained that the company is in breach of its agreement to supply power to the national grid and is working with its stakeholders to get the plant back up and running.
“As I mentioned it is a private company, so we can’t exactly say what is going to happen within the workings of that company. But the news I have been provided for is that they may well be in operation again within two months or so but I cannot vouch for that because as I said they are a private company.”
Usmate was responding to an oral question from Opposition MP, Viliame Gavoka on the status of the renewable energy plant.
