Mozambique gets US$65 million loan for power station rehabilitation

February 2013
MOZAMBIQUE IS expected to boosts power production after the national power utility, Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) secured a loan from France for the rehabilitation of two power stations.


Mozambique will get a loan of 50 million Euros to rehabilitate the Mavuzi and Chicamba power stations in the central province of Manica, under an agreement signed in October with the French Development Agency.

The rehabilitation project should increase the generation capacity of the two power stations by 50 percent so that Mavuzi produces 52 megawatts (MW) while Chicamba will generate 38MW.

The two stations are owned by EDM and both are on the Revue River.
