Projects in Public Consultation Phase

Environmental Impact Assessment Process for Benga Power Plant – Scoping Phase and ToR

Benga Power Plant, Lda, proposes developing a new 300 MW coal-fired power plant in Benga, Moatize District, Tete Province. The Project intends to capitalize on the existing synergies in Tete Province, using discard and export coal extracted and processed in the nearby coal mines, Moatize, and Benga, for electricity production. The proposed power plant will increase the power supply to Mozambique to be connected to Electricity of Mozambique (Electricidade de Moçambique – EDM) grid. Thus, this connection supports the continued growth of energy demand and even creates export potential to neighbouring countries, and can indirectly stimulate new projects and economic development.

Consultec - Consultores Associados, Lda was appointed to undertake the EIA process.
