Challenge to the 320MW Phinda Power Gas to Power Project in Richards Bay IDZ

In this matter, groundWork and the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance (SDCEA) are challenging an environmental authorisation granted to Phinda Power Producer (Pty) Ltd (Phinda Power) by the Acting Chief Director of Integrated Environmental Authorisations (the Chief Director). The environmental authorisation was granted in respect of Phinda Power’s proposed 320MW Emergency Risk Mitigation gas to power plant, to be built in the Richard’s Bay Industrial Development Zone.

 This review application comes as a result of the Minister’s dismissal of groundWork’s appeal.
