Project Description

The objective of the project is to build the first stage of the Mozambique north-south transmission backbone system required to evacuate electricity from the planned Tete Power Plants which will

  1. enable competitively-priced electricity to reach the Southern Africa Power Pool network,
  2. enable the provision of a supply of least-cost generation at a high level of reliability to the Mozambique domestic market thereby improving access, and
  3. enable the generation of revenues for the Mozambique treasury which will significantly contribute to continued strong balance of payments and robust economic growth necessary to underpin the Government’s continued poverty reduction efforts.

This project is part of the Programme for Infrastructure Development In Africa (PIDA)
