Demand for land at Coega IDZ is growing

Current investments being negotiated for the Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) have the potential of taking up 70% of the available land on phase one of the project.

While Alcan is yet to commit to setting up an aluminium smelter at the Coega industrial development zone (IDZ), there are more than 40 other investors in the pipeline for this Eastern Cape IDZ, says Coega Development Corporation (CDC) spokesperson Vuyelwa Qinga-Vika.

 

 

Cape Town - Negotiations with Alcan of Canada on a scaled-down version of the proposed aluminium smelter at Coega were continuing, Lionel October, a deputy director-general in the department of trade and industry, said on Friday.

IDC will invest in the planned aluminium smelter at the Coega industrial development zone and the Sishen and Sishen South iron-ore projects.
