621 miles
(1,000 kilometers) length of Nacala coal rail line
17 miles
(27 kilometers) of bridges and viaducts
1.2 miles
(2 kilometers) of tunnels
100 million
metric tons of coal transported per year


Mineral resources giant ENRC commissioned us to carry out logistical and economic studies for a 621-mile (1,000-kilometer) rail line connecting coal mines in Tete with the port of Nacala. We’re developing a reference design, including 17 miles (27 kilometers) of bridges and viaducts and 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) of tunnels. The work will enable export of up to 100 million metric tons of coal per year.


For Maputo’s water treatment and distribution upgrade and extension, we provided design and supervision of improvements to the city’s existing treatment plant and distribution network to increase capacity by 25 million gallons (96 megaliters) per day. The project included a new river intake, improvements to the power supply system, clean water storage reservoirs, pumping stations and 17 miles (27 kilometers) of pipelines.

Social development

We're managing a €2.5 million technical assistance project for a local economic development program that will reduce poverty and improve living conditions for people in rural areas. Jointly funded by the European Union and Government of Mozambique, the project will create income and employment opportunities by promoting economic activities at local level and facilitating small-scale economic infrastructure.


Healthcare has been a central issue for Mott MacDonald in Mozambique. Our health experts have undertaken a number of projects, building our experience in the region.

On behalf of the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), we provided an independent assessment on the best way forward for the project to distribute insecticide-treated nets.
