President Nyusi inaugurates Kuvaninga power station
Bilene (Mozambique), 16 Jul (AIM) – President Filipe Nyusi on 15 July inaugurated a gas fired power plant station in Macarretane in the southern province of Gaza.

The Kuvaninga power project is a public private partnership composed of Mozambican investors, with technical and financial assistance from South African partners. The project required an investment of US$110 million with construction commencing in 2014.

Kuvaninga will supply 40 megawatts of electricity to the southern grid which is run by the publicly owned electricity company EDM. The gas comes from the Temane field in Inhambane province, operated by the South African petrochemical giant Sasol.

At rallies held by President Nyusi during his visit to Gaza province, one of the main issues raised was the need for access to electricity.

President Nyusi has emphasised that the new power plant will also have a positive impact in neighbouring Inhambane, which suffers from frequent power cuts due to the increased consumption of electricity over recent years.

At a rally in Chongoene last week, President Nyusi said that various projects are in the pipeline which will increase the electricity supply even further. This will include the Mapai power plant in northern Gaza.
