ThyssenKrupp Uhde and SGCE enter into Master License and Supply Agreement. Coal-to-Liquids Complex in Mozambique applies Uhde Prenfol-PDQ process.
Dortmund – Under this agreement, SGCE will license ThyssenKrupp Uhde's Prenflo-PDQ process for multiple Coal-to-Liquids (CTL) projects that will convert coal into high-quality liquid fuels using SGCE's proprie-tary XTLHTM solution. Furthermore, both companies have signed a specific License and Supply Agreement for the CTL project in Mozambique currently in the design phase. Upon movement into the implementation phase, Prenflo-PDQ technology will be utilized to process the domestic coal from a coal mine in Moatize, Mozambique.
By means of a Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, clean fuels will be produced for the utilisation domestically as well as for export to neighbouring countries. The plant will have a nominal design capacity of 9,500 barrels per day and is planned to begin operation in 2016.
