Request for Proposal (RFP No. 12/MOT/2024) – Supply, Installation and Commissioning of Battery System and Chargers at Maputo Substation.

Expira em: Jul 29, 2024

1. Background:

The Mozambique Transmission Company – MOTRACO – is a limited liability company incorporated in the Republic of Mozambique in 1998. The company is a joint venture between Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM), Eskom Holdings (Eskom), and Eswatini Electricity Company (EEC). MOTRACO was created as a vehicle for co-operation with the primary objective of building, owning, operating, and maintaining the transmission system, and supplying electricity to the Mozal aluminium smelter in Mozambique and wheeling power to EEC and EDM.

2. Context and Description:

Maputo Substation is a 400kV Substation with 2 X 400kV incoming Transmission lines, 4 x 500MVA and 2 x 400MVA transformers. The Substation was built in 1998 and has been upgraded over the years by the addition of primary and secondary plant equipment, which demands more DC system, specifically for the backup system.

Currently, the ideal 12-hour DC backup (as per Eskom Standard) no longer exists and an upgrade is required. Currently, the backup time is around 5 hours.

A survey was conducted to determine the new specifications for the new batteries and charger to cater to the current and future Substation’s load, as per the attached spreadsheet. The existing batteries and charger’s specifications are comprised of:
