Nampula: EDM Expands Electricity Network to Two More Administrative Posts

Two more administrative posts in the northern province of Nampula have been connected to the national electricity grid, benefiting around 2,000 new consumers, as part of an investment by the governments of Mozambique and Spain of around 165 million meticals (around 2.6 million US dollars).

The administrative centres of Imala, in the Muecate district, and Iuluti, in Mogovolas, both in Nampula province, have already been connected to the National Electricity Network (REN).

The project to extend the electricity grid to the Imala Administrative Post, which has been connected since 28 June, consisted of the construction of 35 kilometres of medium voltage line at 33 kV, starting from the Muecate district headquarters. In addition, 150 street lighting lamps and five transformer stations were installed, totalling 500kVA of power.

The extension of the electricity network to the Iuluti administrative post, which was connected on 29 June, consisted of the construction of 45 kilometres of 33 kV medium voltage line from the Mogovolas district headquarters.

This project includes the installation of eight transformers totalling 800kVA of power, the construction of 10 kilometres of low voltage network and the installation of 150 street lamps.

“With the electrification of the Imala and Iuluti administrative posts, the number of electrified administrative posts in Nampula province rises to 55, out of the existing 70,” explains the company Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) in a press release to which AIM had access today.

The project to electrify the Imala administrative post cost 75 million meticals (1.18 million dollars).
