The coal terminal at Nacala-a-Velha Port in Nampula province will formally enter into operation on 9 May 2017, marking the start of a new phase in the exploitation of the resources extracted in the Moatize basin in Tete province.

Refurbishment of the 900-kilometre railway line connecting Nacala-a-Velha to the Moatize coal-mining area began in 2012 at a cost of about US$ 4.5 billion and included the construction of new sections and the rehabilitation of others both in Mozambique and in neighbouring Malawi.
