The Japanese group Mitsubishi Corporation will build an electric substation of 110/33kV, 40MVA in northern Mozambique, under a contract signed with the state company Electricity of Mozambique (EdM), a project valued at 14,5 million Dollars.

The contract includes the construction of a substation of 110 / 33kV, 40MVA, with three kilometers of line of 110kV and three towers of 110kV in Namialo, Nampula province, to link with the existing line and the renewal of the remote system in substations of 220 / 110kV and 110 / 33kV in the city of Nampula. It is expected that the work is completed in February 2018.

EdM reported that the contract was signed in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital, under the Sixth International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI). The tender to choose the contractor was launched in April 2016 and ended in June 2016, with three Japanese companies submitted their technical and financial proposals for the contract. The competition culminated with the election of Mitsubishi Corporation.
