One of these power solution providers that operates in Eritrea is the Canadian company Aggreko plc. It initially provides a 250kVA generator for Bisha Mine during the exploration period and increased it capacity to 20MW as the power demand increases to peak production.

By Danakali Ltd,

Danakali Limited (ASX:DNK) is pleased to advise that it has initiated the bidding process for power generation for the Colluli potash project and completed the initial expressions of interest (EOI) phase.

EOI’s have been received from power providers based in the Middle East, Australia, Africa, the United States and the United Kingdom. The shortlisted parties will formally bid in a competitive tendering process based on the technical specifications for power generation determined in the definitive feasibility study. These specifications will be refined following the front end engineering design (FEED) process.



Evaluation of the bids from the shortlisted parties is expected to be completed by April, after which the preferred service provider will be selected and commercial terms finalised.

The definitive feasibility study for the Colluli project contemplated power generation utilising a build own operate transfer (BOOT) model, which formed the basis of the expressions of interest process, and underpins the formal tendering process.

Managing Director, Paul Donaldson said “The high level of interest for providing power generation to the Colluli project is pleasing and is a clear endorsement of both the project and the jurisdiction. We are looking forward to advancing the project throughout the year, and expect to commence work on further refining the mining schedule and tendering for the mining contract in the near future.”

Danakali Limited, in conjunction with the Eritrean National Mining Company (ENAMCO), is developing the world class Colluli Potash Project located in the Danakil region of Eritrea, East Africa. Colluli is the largest and shallowest known evaporite deposit in the world with a solid form ore reserve estimate of over 1.1bn tonnes1.

Colluli has a completed definitive feasibility study, is one of the most advanced greenfield sulphate of potash (SOP) developments in the world and demonstrates outstanding economics including industry leading capital intensity, bottom quartile operating costs, close proximity to coast and key markets and unrivalled product diversification potential.

Globally recognised, and highly reputable engineering and construction firm, Fluor was appointed as the lead for the FEED process for the project. Fluor is a highly reputable, globally recognised engineering and construction firm with extensive experience in potash and Africa.

Approval of the social and environmental impact assessment (SEIA) for the project was given by the Ministry of Land, Water and Environment in December 2016. The award of the Mining Agreement and Mining License for the project is well progressed.

  1. Globally recognised, and highly reputable engineering and construction firm, Fluor was appointed as the lead for the FEED process for the project. Fluor is a highly reputable, globally recognised engineering and construction firm with extensive experience in potash and Africa”.

    Hmmm, the author seems to suffer with lack of descriptive phrases. LOL

    Anyway, it looks mother Eritrea is progressing forward at a pleasant speed considering the illegal sanctions and other obstacles placed against her!

      1. No brother Segum, I don’t have any concerns whatsoever. It is no big deal. I was just pointing out the obvious and that was the author kind repeated the same statements consecutively. For example he could have replaced that paragraph I mentioned above by something like this:
        1) “Fluor, a highly reputable, globally recognised engineering and construction firm with extensive experience in potash and Africa was appointed as the lead for the FEED process for the project”. OR, (if long statement is not desired):
        2) “Fluor, a highly reputable, globally recognised engineering and construction firm has extensive experience in potash and Africa. It was appointed as the lead for the FEED process for the project”. OR
        3) “Fluor, with extensive experience in potash and Africa, is a highly reputable, globally recognised engineering and construction firm . It was appointed as the lead for the FEED process for the project”. etc. etc.
        Remember there is more ways to skin the cat and the statement the author wrote IS NOT WRONG. It just looks like he/she is REPEATING the same thing. That is my opinion and my intention was not to make big deal of it. Just an insignificant observation. In fact if I was as busy as I normally am, I wouldn’t even bother with that comment. Hope that helps.

      1. ወይ ጉድ፡ ኣንታ ሕጅስ እንታይ ከስምዑና’ዮም በዓል ዓጀውጀዋት፧ “Sanction against our people”? Can you mention a single sanction that has been imposed on our people by our government?

        1. sanction on eritrean people’s right to movment, to assembl, to exercise it’s freedom of religion etc . just define the word sanction and you will get what i am talking about.

          1. Crap! BS! There’s no sanction on movement or assembly. Different rules, for those in the military, yes! As any country in the world, the military has its own rules, especially during times of war and tension. The people in general are not restricted at all. To ppl like you, Eritrea has no external enemy, whatsoever.

        2. I think sanction is probably the easiest word to use against the action of this gov. Nevertheless, you are the result of shaebia sanction who forcing 100 thousands of citizen out of the country and scattered all over the world from which some like you have no gut to go back but shouting like a real patriot.BTW, you could’ve write this statement from Asmara or Asab.

          1. Can someone advise me on how to buy Danakali shares please.
            I’m interested buy don’t know how to do it and I’m sure there are many like me.
            Cheers

          2. Not sure what you trying to say but FYI there are >100k refugee inTigray region which life have been so difficult but want to stay persistently because, despite all the problem facing they still think that live in shimelba or shire is much better than in their home turf. So what does telling you heh? Like someone mentioned in this forum Eritrea is losing her valuable resource which will have knock-on-effect onto the next generation. You don’t have to be genius to see what’s going on in our country unless…

      2. As my Eritrean bother put it below quite eloquently, “ወይ ጉድ፡ ኣንታ ሕጅስ እንታይ ከስምዑና’ዮም በዓል ዓጀውጀዋት፧ “Sanction against our people”? Can you mention a single sanction that has been imposed on our people by our government?”

        Come on, please try to come up with some thing else. Then again how could people like you come up with the something else.
        ወይ ጉድ፡ ኣንታ ሕጅስ እንታይ ከስምዑና’ዮም በዓል ዓጀውጀዋት፧ ?!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. You said it and here is Eritrea ready to feed the “hungry world” for the next 100 years. Here is the Eritreans Potash to just do that.

      Eritrea, give more and tell me more of what you got. Eritrea, tell me more about the Eritrean Red Sea fish.also Shall I talk about the Eritrean Gold, copper, Sikver, and Zink” , No and not, for I know these resources and blessings oof Eritrea.

      But you know what. The greatest Eritreans resources is not these and much more God/Allah given resources but her hard working, creative, peaceful, optimistitic-to-the false. and talented people. That is the hidden secrete of Eritrea.

      Stay on curse, for the Promised Land is already here!

  2. BREAKING:

    Eritrean – Swedish Alexander Isaacs made history and named the youngest goal scorer of all time – in 105 years.

    “I am not surprised,” says coach Janne Andersson after 6-0 win against Slovakia.

    The then 18-year-old Erik Dahlström’s record from 1912 (two goals against Finland) is now erased from the history books.

    105 years later saw a 17-year-old Alexander Isaac to become the national team’s youngest scorer of all time.
