Mozambique on Monday began construction of gas-to-power plant and transmission line projects worth $1 billion in the southern province of Inhambane as the government aims to boost energy supply.
The World Bank is one of the financing partners of the infrastructure projects, alongside the United States, Norway, African Development Bank (AfDB), Islamic Bank and The OPEC Fund for International Development, according statements from the World Bank and the U.S. embassy.
At the launch of project, Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi said that the day marked a milestone in the framework of this endeavour to illuminate Mozambique. He added that their governance aspires that more than 10 million Mozambicans will have access to electricity for the first time in their homes by 2024. Upon completion, the gas-to-power Temane Thermal Power Plant will have a capacity of 450 megawatts.
