Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip has applauded the announcement of Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) as one of the locations for a gas-to-power station and says this will create much-needed jobs in the region.

Earlier this month, the department of energy announced that the Coega IDZ would be one of two locations for the gas-to-power programme, along with Richards Bay IDZ.

Coega IDZ will have 1 000 megawatts of the power facility allocated to the zone, with the investment into the operation expected to total R25 billion.
