Transalloys is a producer of silicon manganese. It has proposed a coal plant of either 55 MW or 150 MW near its smelter complex in Mpumalanga province to provide electricity. The EIA was submitted in May 2015, and states the company's preference for a 55MW plant, although both options are assessed.[1]

With no apparent developments in over two years, it appears that this project may be shelved or abandoned. It does not appear in the country's 2018 draft Integrated Resource Plan, released in August 2018.[2]
