EdM selects consortium for Mavuzi and Chicamba hydropower plants rehabilitation

A contract signed by state-owned power company Electricidade de Mozambique (EdM) and a French consortium will allow for the repair of the Mavuzi and Chicamba hydropower plants.
Repairs to the two plants are expected to cost US$122 million and will be executed by Cegelec and Hydrokarst.

Neither the Mavuzi or Chicama plants has received major rehabilitation work since being constructed in the 1950s and 1960s, respectively, EdM said.

Work on the projects is expected to increase their current cumulative output capacity from about 63 MW to around 86 MW.

The German development bank KfW had agreed to provide US$23.5 million for the project.

EdM assumed control of the projects in 2011 after they sat unused for several decades.
