According to bank documents, the objective of the project is to strengthen the country's transmission capacity to efficiently and reliably meet the domestic demand for electricity and export power to the Southern Africa Power Pool (SAPP), whilst also promoting private sector participation in the development of the country's and regional power system.
The Temane Transmission Project (TTP) consists of a 563-km, 400-kV single-circuit HVAC (High Voltage Alternating Current) transmission line between Vilanculos Chibuto-Matalane-Maputo, associated with three new 400-kV substations at Vilanculos, Chibuto and Matalane, and expansion of the existing Maputo substation. The project will allow for the evacuation of 400 MW from the envisaged Central Termica Temane (CTT) project, which will reinforce generation capacity in the country and in the region via the utilization of Mozambique's endogenous gas resources. The project is also expected to have significant positive economic impacts along the route, unleashing industrial developments that are currently constrained by lack of a reliable power supply solution in the geographic area covered. The TTP will also allow security and reliability of electricity supply and the establishment of economic development zones along the envisaged T-line route. In these areas, it will contribute to unlock the agricultural potential of rural areas and the creation of higher value jobs. The main components of the project are: (a) substations; (b) transmission lines; (c) financing costs; and (d) other costs.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
