COBA Portugal signed, on January 20, with the Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Mines of the Republic of Malawi, a contract for the feasibility study of a hydroelectric project: the “Kholombidzo Hydropower Power Plant”, located at the south of the country, in the middle of Shire river.

The Hydro Power Project will include a concrete diversion dam, just downstream of the Matope Bridge, and a surface water conveyance structure with about 4 km which includes headrace, penstocks and tailrace channel. The open-air power plant will be designed for an installed capacity of some 100 MW.

The study will be carried out during 18 months and the contract is financed by the African Development Bank.
