Mozambique – Zambia Interconnector Project

The governments of Mozambique and Zambia have agreed to strengthen their existing bilateral co-operation by interconnecting their power systems, by signing an Inter-Governmental Memorandum of Understanding. The two national power utilities, Electricidade de Moçambique, E.P. (EDM) of Mozambique and Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation Limited (ZESCO) of Zambia, as implementing agencies for the respective governments also entered into a memorandum of understanding, to implement the Mozambique – Zambia Interconnector Project.

The Mozambique-Zambia Interconnector will consist of two single circuit 400kV lines from the Matambo 220kV substation, in Tete, Mozambique, to Chipata West 330kV substation in Zambia, to be implemented in two phases. Phase 1 will consist of the establishment of one single circuit 400 kV line. The implementation of the second single circuit 400kV line (i.e., Phase 2) will be dependent on the volumes to be traded in the future.

Zambeze River Water Supply Project

Vale Moçambique SA, a mining company, headquartered in Brazil, has been installed in Mozambique since 2004. Vale's Mining Concession is located in Moatize, Province of Tete, entering into pre-operation in July 2010 and operation in 2011. In 2016, Vale expanded the mine complex with the entry into operation of the 2nd Processing Center, which prepares and processes coal for transformation into a product, namely Metallurgical Coal and Thermal Coal.

The entry into operation of new mining sections, such as Section 5; 6 and Section 2B, forecast an increase in water requirements. In 2016, a study of available alternatives was carried out regarding raw water sources, transport systems, and their respective costs and technical implications. The present Project concerns the construction of a 2500 m³/h intake in the Zambezi River (22 hours of pumping per day) to meet the water needs giving the new planned mining fronts.
