According to a March 2016 report, an MoU was signed between Mozambique and Zambia for a 1,200 MW coal plant in Nacala, the city in Nampula province where Mozambique's Nacala port is located. The plant would also power Zambia.[1] A report in July 2016 placed the jointly sponsored 1200 MW coal plant in Mozambique's Tete province rather than in Nacala.[2]

However, there have been no developments since the announcement, and the project appears to be shelved.
