Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) on Tuesday 24 January again reported a breakdown in the electricity substation, after a similar problem happened a week ago.
According to a statement from the institution, the breakdown is affecting the supply of electricity to a total of 15,000 people in the city of Quelimane, Zambezia province.
“The interruptions in the power supply are affecting the neighbourhoods of the provincial capital of Zambézia [Quelimane], due to a fault registered in the electricity substation that supplies part of the city,” EDM explained in a statement.
According to the company, its technical teams are on “the ground” to resolve the situation.
EDM currently has around 2.7 million customers, with a target to reach six million by 2030. Last year, the company made a total of 348,000 new connections across the country, and another 320,000 are planned for 2023.
