Palapye, once said to be the fastest-growing village in Africa, is a large town in Botswana, situated about halfway between Francistown and Gaborone. Over the years its position has made it a convenient stop-over on one of southern Africa’s principal north-to-south rail and road routes. Located here is the Morupule Colliery Coal Mine (MCM), which supplies Morupule Power Station, Botswana’s principal domestic source of electricity. The power station has undertaken an expansion project to increase its generation capacity to meet the country’s increasing demand for electricity. The Motheo Project, which commenced with commissioning as of December 2021, will expand the coal production of Morupule to allow for high scalability, with the addition of an opencast mine, an integrated coal handling and processing plant (CHPP) as well as supporting infrastructure. This expansion will also assist with providing increased power generation and job creation for local settlements. Morupule is a mine-mouth power station situated near Palapye in the Central District of Botswana. The coal is supplied by Morupule Colliery. Two new projects, located 30km south of Palapye, are in the process of being developed. The owner is Shumba Energy with a billion tons of resources. This includes a 300MW power station.
