Indian firm gets go-ahead for $3b Mozambique plant

- Leadership - Oct 04, 2011

India's Jindal Steel & Power have been given the go-ahead to build a 2,640 megawatt coal-fired power plant in Mozambique.

 

The plant will be built in Tete, a northern province of the country, renown for having some of the planet' largest untapped coal reserves.

 

The plant, expected to cost $3 billion, is due to start operating in 2015, the energy ministry said, with power to be sold in Mozambique and across southern Africa.

 

Mozambique already exports power to neighbouring countries Zimbabwe and South Africa, which struggle to meet fast-rising demand.

Tete has attracted lots of foreign investment due with miners such as Vale and Rio Tinto developing coal fields left untouched since the end of the civil war almost two decades ago.

 

A 1,500 MW hydro-power project is also to be built in the country involving a consortium consisting of Brazilian conglomerate Camargo Correa, Mozambican investment company Insitec Group and state electricity firm EDM.
