Mozambique utility awards grid study for linking new hydro projects

Mozambique utility Electricidade de Mocambique (EDM) awarded Vattenfall Power Consultant and Norconsult AS a contract for the study of a transmission backbone system to deliver power from proposed new hydro and thermal power plants to southern Mozambique.
The contract is valued at about US$3.3 million.

With funding from the World Bank, Mozambique plans to develop an integrated transmission system designed to handle increased capacity from several large power projects in Tete Province expected to total 7,000 megawatts.

Under the recently-awarded contract, the firms are to perform a technical and economic feasibility study for the Mozambican Integrated Transmission Backbone System, called the CESUL Transmission Project. The work is to take about ten months.
