Comprised of Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, Southern Africa Development Community ("SADC") is also a region of great importance for Mota-Engil Africa. Among the main projects in Mozambique, where Mota-Engil Africa has been present since 1991, the highlight includes the bridge over the Zambezi river, the refurbishment of the road between Milange and Mocuba and more recently the award of two sections of the Nacala Corridor – project which comprises the execution of a completely new railway line, connecting the Moatize Mine to the Port of Nacala, through Malawi.
In the first years of operation in Malawi, Mota-Engil Africa was primarily focused on road infrastructure, particularly in construction works and rehabilitation of the national road network. This strategy has now been changed as Mota-Engil Africa has been awarded works for private multinational companies, mainly for the mining sector such as Paladin and Vale.
In Zimbabwe, Mota-Engil Africa was awarded with an important mining contract and in Zambia there are already various contracts for the refurbishment of the Great East Road. Mota-Engil África believes these markets present great growth opportunities for Mota-Engil Africa and also rejoices for being part of so many fundamental projects for the development of these countries and their potential.
