Public consultation marks the final steps of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Ressano Garcia gas power station (Mozambique)

The Environmental Impact Assessment of the Ressano Garcia gas power station (Mozambique) that Nemus and its local partner Beta have been developing is now entering its final stage, which will be marked by the 2nd session of public consultation, to be held on the 29th of May.

The project being assessed is a gas-fired combined-cycle power station, that will have a total output of 99 MW and which was engineered for a horizon of 23 years. The power station will be settled in the existing industrial area of Ressano Garcia, next to the South African border.

The whole country has been looking forward to the construction of this power plant, because it will help achieve the goal set in the Mozambican Energy Strategy to enhance the power production in about 1.200 to 2.000 MW/year. This will not only provide for the national consumption but it will also allow for the exportation to the neighbouring countries.

Listening to the population and all the interested entities throughout the whole process has been assured by the usual public participation tools – a proceeding in which Nemus is very experienced. The purpose of this 2nd public session is the presentation of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) – draft version, that is already available for consultation. All the notes, commentaries and questions will be addressed, answered and incorporated in the final version of the EIAR.
