involves the construction of a 25 km 400 kV electrical transmission line to connect the power plant to a new Vilanculos substation being developed as part of the ~563 km 400 kV Temane Transmission Project (TTP) connecting Vilanculos to Maputo. The TTP will be implemented by Sociedade Nacional de Transporte de Energia (SNTE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of EDM and supported by multiple development finance institutions including a World Bank International Development Association (IDA) loan.
