Hidroeléctrica de Lupata S.A. (HDL), formed by a joint venture of Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM), Hydro parts Holding, Cazembe Holding and Sonipal de Moçambique is undertaking the Lupata Hydroelectric Power Plant project at Lupata in Mozambique.
The project involves the construction of a 600MW hydroelectric power plant. It also includes construction of a concrete rockfill dam of 500m wide and height of 40m with a reservoir of 208km2, powerhouse, Longitudinal Cofferdam, Spillways, Canals, substations, the installation of 4 Kaplan turbines of 150 MW (or 6 of 100 MW in Study), generators, transformers and the laying of transmission lines.
The construction work of the Lupata hydroelectric power plant will take place in four phases which include construction of cofferdam/diversion of the river course and the construction of the dam.
The first phase of work includes the construction of one longitudinal cofferdam in order to protect the excavation to enable the building of the infrastructure of concrete.
The second phase of work includes the construction of infrastructure and the beginning of the spillway excavation of the powerhouse, to locate them on the right bank of the river.
In the third stage, the cofferdam will be constructed on upstream and downstream and the longitudinal cofferdam will be removed. During this step the flow will be diverted to the unloader, thereby enabling the operations inherent in the next stage.
The fourth phase of works includes the construction of the dam in the river bed, the system of water supply and power plant on the right bank of the river.
Impacto, Projectos e Estudos Ambientais has been appointed as a pre-feasibility study consultant.
Hidroelectrica de Lupata, S.A formed by a joint venture of SONIPAL, ATP ENGENHARIA, LDA and ENAGOL -ENERGIAS DE ANGOLA, LDA has proposed the plan for the realization of the project.
The consortium will be responsible for technical, feasibility, economic, environmental impact studies and basic design preparation on the project.
Hydroparts Holding, Cazembe Holding, Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM), and Sonipal de Moçambique won the concession contract for the development of the project.
Due to the dry climate and the demand for water in irrigations, the intensity of water in the Zambezi river is decreasing which is leading to the revision of the generating capacity of the plant which is planned at 600 MW.
The development of the hydroelectric project also depends on success of Mozambique Backbone Transmission System (CESUL) project which is facing delay due to problems with its shareholders and financing structure.
