Mozambique has been on the group’s map since 2015. In 2020, we entered into two relevant contracts with Electricidade de Moçambique, EP: the refurbishment of the medium voltage distribution network in the city of Maputo and the expansion of the Pemba substation, in the country’s northern transmission network.
The first aims to improve the quality of power delivered to the population and the second to reinforce the available grid power, in a region where oil and gas investments are taking place.
