Tete power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Mozambique and coal|
The Tete power station is a proposed 1,200-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Mozambique.
The map below shows the location Tete province, where the plant would be built.
According to a March 2016 report, an MoU was signed between Mozambique and Zambia for a 1,200 MW coal plant in Nacala, the city in Nampula province where Mozambique's Nacala port is located. The plant would also power Zambia. A report in July 2016 placed the jointly sponsored 1200 MW coal plant in Mozambique's Tete province rather than in Nacala.
However, there have been no developments since the announcement, and the project appears to be shelved.
