Mozambican coal on way to Britain
London, 15 Oct (AIM) – A shipment of 35,000 tonnes of coking coal from the Benga open cast coal mine in the Mozambican province of Tete is on its way to Britain to feed Tata Steel’s furnaces in the eastern town of Scunthorpe.
The shipment is due to arrive at Immingham port in late October, and will be the first of six shipments totalling 200,000 tonnes that should be unloaded by the end of March next year.
The Benga coal mine began operations in February, and was formally inaugurated by President Armando Guebuza in May. It is run by the multinational company Rio Tinto, with Tata Steel of India owning a 35 per cent share.
A spokesperson for Tata Steel told AIM that "the Benga mine benefits Tata Steel by increasing security of supply in high-quality coking coal and financially through its equity position in the mine".
Tata produces 10.7 million tonnes of steel in Britain, and will be importing an increasing amount of coking coal from Mozambique as part of its strategy to secure supplies and reduce market volatility.
