The Republic of Mozambique is located far from Japan.

In recent years, as the country’s economy has grown, energy consumption has been increasing at a rate of around 10% per year. Currently, the country relies on electricity imported from South Africa, making it important to secure a new energy source for the suburbs of Maputo in southern Mozambique.

For that reason, it was decided to expand the existing Maputo Power Plant (75,000 kW) with a state-of-the-art high-efficiency gas combined cycle thermal power plant (105,000 kW), and the construction was completed in August 2018 using our extensive overseas experience and expertise. Gas combined cycle power generation is highly efficient, resulting in a higher energy conversion rate and a lower impact on the environment.

With the hope of supporting sustainable power generation by conserving resources in developing countries, we are active in every corner of the world.
