The US Government has participated in the groundbreaking of the Central Termica de Temane (CTT), also known as the Temane thermal power plant, and the Temane Transmission Project (TTP) in Mozambique. These two energy projects will help strengthen energy security, boost access to affordable energy and support the country’s contributions to the regional power market.

The US Government provided support to both projects through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC). Upon completion, the 450MW CTT plant will deliver much-needed electricity from the northern part of Inhambane Province to the more populous south via the 563km TTP transmission line.

“The US Government, the Government of Mozambique and other partners worked closely to get us here today, breaking ground on a project that supports Mozambique in its goal to provide every citizen with access to electricity by 2030,” said Chargé d’Affaires of the US Embassy to Mozambique Abigail Dressel. “The Temane energy project is essential to the economic transformation underway in Mozambique and southern Africa and we’re proud to support it.”
