Mozambique Power Report

BMI View: Mozambique is one of the most attractive markets in Sub-Saharan Africa. The economy is growing rapidly and the government has liberalis ed the country's investment laws, providing an enabling environment for exploiting Mozambique ' s abundant energy resources. However, barriers to investment remain, including high levels of corruption and low-level political instability.

The outlook for Mozambique's power sector is good. After decades of civil war, the political situation has stabilized, the economy and population are growing rapidly, and the government has liberalized the country's investment laws, providing an enabling environment for the development of the power sector. A number of major projects are in the pipeline which will exploit Mozambique's abundant water and coal resources. As a result, power generation will increase by 6.5% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2015 to 25.3TWh, and to 36.4TWh in 2024. Meanwhile, the government is expanding access to electricity with the help of international donors, which will facilitate a rise in consumption over the ten-year forecast period. However, barriers to investment remain, including high levels of corruption and low-level political instability, while market opportunities are limited by the low purchasing power of consumers.

Recent Developments

  • Mozambique is continuing to plug its generating shortfall. In January, the government has applied to purchase electricity from Tanzania. And in February, Electricidade de Mocambique commissioned Aggreko, which specializes fast-track temporary cover, to install 18MW of capacity to in the port of Nacal in the north of Mozambique.

  • Meanwhile, efforts continue towards expanding capacity on a more permanent basis. The Finnish group Wartsila has just signed a USD181mn contract with the Ressano Garcia Thermal Plant to build what will be the largest gas-fired power plant in Mozambique. And Ncondezi Energy Ltd has raised an initial USD5m towards construction of 300MW...
