Efacec was selected for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), and operations and maintenance (O&M) of a 41 MWp solar plant, located in Metoro, north of Mozambique. With an area of about 138 hectares, this infrastructure has a production capacity of 68 GWh per year. The operation of this solar power plant is expected to start in the end of 2020.
It will be the Solar Power plant with the highest installed capacity in Mozambique to date, making it a flagship project for Efacec, that operates in Mozambique for more than 20 years, reinforcing the brand presence in the market and in the region.
The project is being developed and managed by Neoen and is jointly owned by Neoen and EDM through the company Central Solar Metoro.
The agreement includes the supply of full EPC, including the interconnection in High Voltage to the EDM’s substation and associated guarantees for the performance of solar power plant, as well as a long term contract for the O&M of the plant.
This plant contributes to the achievement of Mozambique goals for the diversification of the Energy Mix targets and decentralisation of the energy generation, with the aim to give an access to energy to 100% of the population by 2030.
The generated energy will be sold through a Power Purchase Agreement contracted with EDM.
Efacec develops solutions for solar systems, including self-consumption, hybrid systems and large-scale PV plants on a turnkey basis. Efacec positions itself as a main player in the energy sector, with about 300 MW installed worldwide and 133 MW under O&M.
