The Government of the Republic of Mozambique and the Government of the Republic of Malawi de-sire to take advantage of the Southern Africa Power Pool (SAPP), a body established to co-ordinate matters of regional power integration under the auspices of Southern African Development Commu-nity (SADC), by interconnecting their power systems for the mutual benefit of the two countries. A feasibility study done in 1996 concluded that with an investment of US$ 32 million it would be pos-sible to interconnect Mozambique and Malawi through a 220 kV transmission line from Matambo sub-station (Mozambique) to Blantyre West (Malawi). In order to improve the power flow in Malawi it was decided that the line shall end in Phombeya. The transmission line with a length of about 210 km would be able to tr…
Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) intends to implement the Submarine Cables Project for the 220 kV cable connections between Ras Abu Aboud Super and West Bay Super-2 substations.
For the control of the national HV power transmission network a new control system will be installed at the National Load Dispatch Centre providing the same functionality (SCADA/EMS and Network Applications (NA)) as the existing control system. The system currently in operation was commissioned in 2006 and shall be used in future as a backup system. The new system will be installed in parallel to the existing one in the NLDC. Both systems will be operated in parallel for a certain time. The currently operated system will be dismantled and installed in a separate location at a later stage.
The overall objective of the EMPower Program (Exploring & Motivating Sustainable Power Markets) is to support utilities in countries around the world to help identify specific solar projects and to determine both the potential demand and the cost at which a respective solar technology would be cost competitive relative to other generation sources.
The Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA) is an international astronomy facility, consisting of an equal partnership between Europe and North America, in co-operation with the Republic of Chile. On behalf of Europe, the ALMA construction and operations are led by the European Southern Observatory (ESO).
The objective of the project is to promote overall economic development in the region. Adequate sup-ply of electricity is expected to support the growth of local industries, promote local trade and em-ployment opportunities as well as social welfare for the population in the area through electrification of health and educational facilities. The project will supply power to Magoé, Tsangano, Zumbo, Manje, Chifunde, Furancungo e Fingoe in Tete Province.
