Mineral resources giant ENRC commissioned us to carry out logistical and economic studies for a 1000km rail line connecting coal mines in Tete with the port of Nacala. We’re developing a reference design, including 27km of bridges and viaducts and 2km of tunnels. The work will enable export of up to 100M tonnes of coal per annum.


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 96 megalitres/day. The project included a new river intake, improvements to the power supply system, clean water storage reservoirs, pumping stations and 27km of pipelines.

Social development

We're managing a €2.5M technical assistance project for a local economic development programme that will reduce poverty and improve living conditions for people in rural areas. Jointly funded by the EU 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 in Mozambique for Mott MacDonald. 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 public health private market approach behind the DFID-supported insecticide treated nets project. We advised on how best to continue support to the Ministry of Health/National Malaria Control Programme to help it reach targets for insecticide treated nets coverage while phasing out the current initiative.
