Malawi-Mozambique Interconnector Project takes shape



Malawi is satisfied with the progress of construction works for the 400 KV power lines that will be used to tap power from Mozambique as part of the Malawi-Mozambique Power Interconnector.

On Wednesday, Consul General Happy Saka visited a construction site in Mutarara in Tete Province where the contractor has started digging holes for the high-voltage electricity pylons.

Saka said the project will help Malawi to tap 120 megawatts from Mozambique which will greatly improve power supply to Malawi.

“Uninterrupted and reliable power supply is what the Chakwera government is striving to achieve as soon as possible so we are able to power homes and businesses for accelerated development.

“I am pleased with the progress that I saw. I am sure by December we will be at a very advanced stage in terms of having these power lines completed,” said Saka.

Saka’s visit comes ahead of the visit by Malawi’s Minister of Energy who is expected in the area to inspect progress.

The works are expected to be completed by December 2023.

The project is being carried out by Lansen & Toubro Limited and Gora Civil Engineering & Building Contractors.
