CIG — through its main subsidiary Consolidated Power Projects (Conco) — is the largest turnkey developer and installer of high-voltage electrical substations and overhead cables in sub-Saharan Africa. Mr Gamsu said Conco had performed well over the past six months, securing a healthy 17% increase in its order book to R2.1bn from R1.8bn.
Coal / Grindrod and Mozambique’s Maputo Port Development Company (MPDC) plan to invest $1.7bn over the next five years to upgrade ports in the country as demand grows, MPDC said on Friday.

Investment of $355m this year and next year had been approved to boost capacity at the Matola port terminal. The coal terminal will be handling 7.2-million tons by next year, from 6-million tons.
