Tschudi Logistics brings in more equipment for Temane power project
Tschudi Logistics Mozambique team has been once again involved in moving equipment for the Sasol em Moçambique Temane thermal power station. The company moved two reserve tanks as well as a four-man sleeper unit to the project site.
The shipment arrived in Maputo on a ro-ro vessel and was safely delivered more than 700 kilometres away at the plant in the Inhambane Province. With the load collectively weighing in excess of 50 tonnes, the delivery was transported using a combination of flatbed and low bed trucks handled by LASO Moçambique.
Upon completion, the gas-fired power plant is expected to bolster Mozambique’s energy security, while eventually boosting access to affordable energy and furthering the country’s contributions to the regional power market.
Earlier this year Tschudi’s team in Mozambique served as chartering broker for the Tide Navigator between the owner ForestWave and charterers COLI Schiffahrt & Transport in Hamburg. The vessel delivered a total of 4,707 popes for PM Piping at the Maputo Port Development Company (MPDC). The pipes, with a cumulative length of 74 kilometres are destined for the Temane project’s Sasol base. Tschudi Logistics handled both agency and coordination of discharging in Maputo port.
This is another of Tschudi Mozambique’s projects contributing to the construction of Temane thermal power station, which is under development by a consortium consisting of Globeleq, eleQtra, ELECTRICIDADE DE MOÇAMBIQUE, and Sasol. The Central Térmica de Temane (CTT) 450 MW is gas-fired power project, located at Temane in Inhambane Province in Mozambique.
The project broke ground in March 2022. CTT will supply low cost, reliable power to Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) under a 25-year tolling agreement using natural gas supplied from the Pande-Temane Fields operated by Sasol and ENH, the state-owned hydrocarbon company. CTT is expected to provide electricity to meet the demand of 1.5 million households and will contribute about 14 percent of the electricity supply capacity available to meet demand in Mozambique.
