BMI View: Mozambican power generation will remain subdued, owing to a lack of progress on planned power plants throughout our 10-year forecast period. Gas and coal reserves provide opportunities for growth in thermal power generation, while investments into grid infrastructure will be required to boost electrification rates.

Latest Updates and Structural Trends

  • A gas-fired power plant is being planned for the city of Maputo, to be completed in 2018. With a generating capacity of 110 megawatts (MW), we expect the power plant will be able to add 0.42 terawatt hours (TWh) a year. Japanese firm, Sumitomo Corporation, has been awarded the contract. We do not include it in our forecasts as of yet, but we will as soon as we see concrete evidence of progress.

  • Our forecasts for hydropower generation in Mozambique remain unchanged since last quarter. We do not currently factor in any new hydropower plants, due to delays across the board.

  • Swaziland has ceased importing electricity from Mozambique, stating that electricity import charges are higher than that of South Africa's ESKOM

  • A 100 megawatt (MW) floating power station, owned by Turkish group Karadeniz Holding, is currently docked in Nacala. The power station will supply electricity to both Mozambique and Zambia.
