Another gas fired power station for 2018
 
London, 23 Feb (AIM) – Mozambique’s electricity supply will receive a further boost in 2018 with the opening of a 110 megawatt gas fired power station just outside the capital city, Maputo.
 
Under a contract signed with the publicly owned electricity company, EDM, the Japanese companies Sumitomo and IHI will construct the 17 billion yen (about 150 million US dollars) plant with a loan from the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
 
According to Sumitomo, this will be Mozambique’s first gas fired combined cycle power plant - a technology that increases the efficiency of the generation process.
 
Construction will commence this year, and EDM will begin operating the facility in 2018. When operational, the power station will provide about a fifth of Mozambique’s domestic electricity requirement (excluding the MOZAL aluminium smelter).
 
Mozambique’s electricity generation is expanding rapidly. On Friday, President Filipe Nyusi inaugurated a 120 megawatt gas fired power station at Ressano Garcia on the border with South Africa. The power station is owned by the Mozambican company Gigawatt which will sell electricity to EDM.
 
Meanwhile, a Turkish floating power station arrived last week in the northern port of Nacala. It will burn heavy fuel oil to generate 110 megawatts of energy for EDM. According to the Zitamar news service, this will supply power to the north of the country, enabling EDM to sell on to neighbouring Zambia some of the electricity it purchases from HCB, the company that operates the Cahora Bassa hydroelectric power station on the Zambezi river.
 
Excluding Mozal, peak electricity demand in Mozambique was 530 megawatts in 2010.
