Reliability Tests on Temane-Maputo Power Line to Cost $60M

In May, reliability tests began on the equipment in the substations under construction across the country, linked to the power line project between Temane and Maputo. This line, with a length of more than 500 kilometres and a capacity of 400 kilovolts (kV), is a significant undertaking for Mozambique and represents an investment of around 3.7 billion meticals (60 million dollars), as reported by Rádio de Moçambique.

According to the information, the reliability tests of the equipment installed in the Temane-Maputo electricity transmission project include an assessment of the cables laid over a 563 kilometre stretch, which will have to evacuate the power that will be generated at the Thermoelectric Power Station, based on natural gas extracted from the Pande and Temane deposits in Inhambane.

The project director, Adriano Jonas, explained that ‘the aim of carrying out reliability tests on the equipment installed is to ensure that these devices are safe, effective and reliable’.

This activity follows the conclusion at the end of last month of the cable laying process as part of this project

With the current level of execution at 97%, he emphasised that the project will be completed next July.

According to a BNN Breaking publication, Maputo province has guaranteed essential support for the timely completion of the project, emphasising ‘its importance for the region, promising to strengthen economic growth and stability through better energy infrastructure’.

‘The successful completion of this transmission line not only signifies Mozambique’s commitment to improving its energy capacities, but also prepares the ground for future developments in the sector, potentially attracting more investment and promoting regional development,’ the portal clarified.

The media organisation says that the electricity transmission line is testimony to the country’s ambitious efforts to improve its energy infrastructure.
