Mozambique has undertaken significant efforts in recent years in electrifying the country. For the Government, renewable energy is essential to address the challenge of securing more electricity to the country. Scatec Solar is realising the first large scale solar power plant in Mozambique with a 40 MW project.
The 40 MW plant is located close to the city of Mocuba in the Zambézia Province. The Mocuba project is the first large scale solar plant to be built in the country and represents an important step in realising Mozambique's ambition to increase renewable power generation in its energy mix. Commercial operation is expected in third quarter 2019.
