Mozambique and Portugal to produce rolling stock
 
Maputo, 14 Feb (AIM) – The Mozambican and Portuguese governments plan to set up a company to produce railway locomotives and wagons that will be used to transport coal mined in the western province of Tete.

The two governments are expected to sign a protocol covering rail transport later this week, which will then lead to the establishment of the new company.

Transport Minister Paulo Zucula, cited by Radio Mozambique on Monday, said that Mozambique will need at least 600 wagons in the next five years to move coal from Tete, down the Sena railway line, to the port of Beira.

Last Friday, Zucula held a meeting in Maputo with his Portuguese counterpart, Antonio Mendonca, with the aim of establishing partnerships between the two states. At the end of his meeting with Mendonca, Zucula pointed out that countries such as Botswana, Zimbabwe and Swaziland will also need new rail wagons in the coming years,

“This is a business opportunity that is opening”, said Zucula. “Currently South Africa is the only country in the region which has the capacity to assemble this type of material”.

The mining companies are not simply waiting for the Mozambican and Portuguese governments to provide them with rolling stock, but are importing their own. The two companies that expect to start exporting coal later this year, Vale of Brazil and Riversdale of Australia, have both ordered their own locomotives and wagons.
