SA and Mozambique in gas power deal
June 11, 2012
Aggreko will build gas interconnections, a substation and a 275 kV transmission line at the Ressano Garcia border between South Africa and Mozambique. Part of the infrastructure will be transferred to EDM at the end of the contract.
The plant will be powered by natural gas from the Temane fields in Mozambique which has been given to the country’s government as a royalty by the field’s operator Sasol. Eskom will purchase 92 MW of the supply from the 107 MW gas fired power plant and EDM the remaining 15 MW.
