Temane-Maputo power line substations to be tested from May

Reliability tests on the equipment installed at the three substations that make up the Temane-Maputo electricity transmission line, which is more than 500 kilometers long and has a capacity of 400 kilovolts (kV), will begin next May.

The substations, located in Pambara (Vilankulo, Inhambane), Chibuto (Gaza) and Matalane (Marracuene, Maputo), are 93% complete, allowing testing to begin, which is expected to last at least two months, according to Adriano Jonas, director of the power line construction project.

This new energy transportation infrastructure will receive the power generated at the Temane Thermoelectric Power Plant (CTT), from the natural gas extracted by Sasol in Inhambane, meeting the electrification needs of industrial and agricultural enterprises in the south of the country.

The successful completion of the line not only demonstrates Mozambique’s commitment to improving its energy capacities, but also sets the stage for future developments in the sector, potentially attracting more investment and promoting regional development, according to the portal.

This initiative is considered a critical component of Mozambique’s strategy to ensure energy security and sustainability, paving the way for a brighter and more energized future in the region.
