Work on the Namaacha Wind Power Plant to Start in Second Half of 2024

Globeleq, a leader in the energy production sector in Mozambique, announced that construction of the Namaacha wind power plant, with a capacity of 120 megawatts, is due to start in the second half of this year. The project, budgeted at 270 million dollars, is a collaboration with the Mozambican government and was highlighted during the Mozambique Energy and Mining Exhibition Conference, an event attended by President Filipe Nyusi and the UK’s high commissioner in Maputo, according to Lusa news agency.

‘The plant will significantly increase our energy export capacity, benefiting not only Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) with more favourable prices, but also meeting the growing national energy demand,’ Samir Salé, Globeleq’s Director of Development and Business, told the Agência de Informação de Moçambique (AIM).

Of the total investment, 230 million dollars will be used to build and operate the plant, while the remaining 40 million will be used to develop a 40-kilometre transmission line linking Namaacha to Boane, integrating with the region’s export corridors.

‘This development not only strengthens the distribution network in the provinces of Maputo, Gaza and Inhambane, but also marks the start of the country’s first grid-connected wind farm. We are aligned with the government’s energy transition strategy, focused on maximising renewable resources,’ he explained.

The project, which is expected to be completed in two years, is a milestone for the country’s energy sector and reflects Mozambique’s potential for harnessing renewable energy, contributing to the sustainability and resilience of the national electricity grid.
