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 stabilised, the economy and population are growing rapidly, and the government has liberalised 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 4.6% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2015 to 21.4TWh, and to 30.8TWh in 2024. Meanwhile, the government is expanding access to electricity with the help of international donors, which will facilitate a rise in consumption over our ten-year forecast to 2024.
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 specialises fast-track temporary cover, to install 18MW of capacity to in the port of Nacal in northern Mozambique.
Efforts continue to expand capacity on a more permanent basis. The Finnish group Wartsila has signed a USD181mn contract with the Ressano Garcia Thermal Plant to build the largest gas-fired power plant in Mozambique. And Ncondezi Energy Ltd raised an initial USD5m towards construction of 300MW power plant project near Tete in northern Mozambique.
The north of Mozambique has been experiencing sustained power outages following a severe storm in January which brought down the electricity supply system. The event highlighted the...
