Central Térmica de Ressano Garcia, S.A. (“CTRG”), is a Mozambican joint venture company between Azura Power (“Azura”) with 49%, Electricidade de Moçambique, E.P. (“EDM”) with 46%, with the remaining 5% held in treasury at CTRG. CTRG operates a 175 MW (gross) gas-fired power plant located at Ressano Garcia in Moamba District in the Province of Maputo.


The rationale for the CTRG Project is to use Mozambican natural gas produced from the Pande and Temane gas fields to generate power to provide a stable and competitively priced source of power to meet the increasing electricity demand in Mozambique. All the Project's power generation capacity is sold to EDM under a long-term power purchase agreement ("PPA").

Commercial operation of the Project was achieved on 27 February 2015 and since then CTRG has been faithfully providing all its generated power to EDM which supplies the Mozambican market.
