Project General Description

The Temane Transmission Project (TTP) consists of a 563-km, 400-kV single-circuit HVAC (High Voltage Alternating Current) transmission line between Vilanculos Chibuto-Matalane-Maputo, associated with three new 400-kV substations at Vilanculos, Chibuto and Matalane, and expansion of the existing Maputo substation. The project will allow for the evacuation of 400 MW from the envisaged Central Termica Temane (CTT) project, which will reinforce generation capacity in the country and in the region via the utilization of Mozambique’s endogenous gas resources. The project is also expected to have significant positive economic impacts along the route, unleashing industrial developments that are currently constrained by lack of a reliable power supply solution in the geographic area covered. The TTP will also allow security and reliability of electricity supply and the establishment of economic development zones along the envisaged T-line route. In these areas, it will contribute to unlock the agricultural potential of rural areas and the creation of higher value jobs. The main components of the project are: (a) substations; (b) transmission lines; (c) financing costs; and (d) other costs.

Project Objectives

The objective of the project is to strengthen the country’s transmission capacity to efficiently and reliably meet the domestic demand for electricity and export power to the Southern Africa Power Pool (SAPP), whilst also promoting private sector participation in the development of the country’s and regional power system.


The direct beneficiaries of the project are the populations of the thirteen (13) districts in the southern region of Mozambique, specifically the Province of Inhambane (Vilanculos, Massinga, Funhalouro, and Panda), Province of Gaza (Chibuto, Mandlakaze, Chokwe, Bilene) and Province of Maputo (Magude, Manhiça, Marracuene, Moamba, Boane).
