HDR has been appointed by WHN Solar to conduct a feasibility study for a solar project in Mozambique. ERM and Norconsult, both of which have an on-the-ground presence in the African country, have also been named as contributors.

Under proposals, the photovoltaic plant of up to 100 megawatts would be located at Nacala International Airport in the Province of Nampula. Included are plans for an energy storage facility with up to 50MW capacity located adjacent to the plant.

The Mozambican government is aiming to establish universal access to electricity within the country by 2030, for which it is actively promoting the use of renewable energy projects, specifically solar and hydropower.

HDR international power client development lead, Lisa Larson, commented: "Speaking on behalf of HDR’s entire power group, we are excited to help the government of Mozambique develop its vision for universal access to electricity using renewable sources. We are grateful to WHN Solar for providing this opportunity and our team is ready to get to work."

ERM will be carrying out the environmental and social elements of the feasibility study, whilst Norconsult Mozambique will be involved in a grid study.
