President inaugurates new wind turbine
 

On 8 August President, Armando Guebuza inaugurated at Rocha Beach, Inhambane province, the country’s first fourth generation wind turbine.

The project cost $2.5 million and the turbine will generate 300 kilowatts (KW) of electricity to supply the local tourism industry and 1,200 consumers.

”Mozambique is changing. Tomorrow will certainly be better than today. Thanks to the wind, many Mozambicans will be able to study at night. This turbine will change our life”, said President Guebuza to the population of Salela neighbourhood, where the wind farm was installed.

According to President Guebuza, “until recently the wind seemed to be useless, but today we can generate clean energy without polluting our environment”.

On the occasion, the President told the residents to protect these investments, explaining that, otherwise standards of living will go backwards.

Speaking to AIM, energy Minister Salvador Namburete explained that another 66 wind turbines could be built, with a total installed capacity of 20 megawatts.

The regions surrounding the town of Maxixe, in the province of Inhambane and the beach area of Ponta do Ouro, in the district Matutuíne, in the southern region of Mozambique, are among regions that have already been chosen to host similar projects.

Currently, the Government is negotiating with the two mobile phone operators in Mozambique for the installation of wind speed meters on the top of their antennas to assess the wind power potential, mainly along the Mozambican coast and highlands of the interior regions.

The project is owned by consortium made up of 'Power Adventure', 'Palm Tree Power' and 'OKhela' involving Mozambican, South African and American companies.
