Malawi is satisfied with the progress of construction works for the 400 KV power lines that will be used to tap power from Mozambique as part of the Malawi-Mozambique Power Interconnector Project.
Consul General Happy Saka made the remarks in Mutarara part of Tere Province when he visited the construction site. Currently, the contractor has started digging holes for the high-voltage electricity pylons.
Saka said the project will help Malawi to tap 120 megawatts from Mozambique which will greatly improve power supply in Malawi.
“Uninterrupted and reliable power supply is what the Chakwera government is striving to achieve as soon as possible so we can power homes and businesses for accelerated development.
“I am pleased with the progress that I saw. I am sure by December we will be at an advanced stage in terms of having these power lines completed,” said Saka.
Saka’s visit comes ahead of the visit by Malawi’s Minister of Energy, Ibrahim Matola, who is expected to visit the area to inspect progress.
The works are expected to be completed by December 2023.
The project is being implemented by Lansen & Toubro Limited and Gora Civil Engineering & Building Contractors.
