General Information

The Cahora Bassa Dam based on the Zambezi, is Africa's second largest dam, and was completed in 1975.  It is one of the three major dams on the Zambezi river system, the others being Kariba and Itezhi-Tezhi.  Cahora Bassa Dam is based in the Tete Province of Mozambique.

Construction on the dam began in 1969, and was filled in December 1974.  Stretches of the power transmission lines were damaged during the 16 years of Mozambican Civil War which ended in 1992.  Mozambique own the majority of shares of the power generating project.  Nearly all of the power generated by Cahora Bassa is sold to the South African electricity company, ESKOM.  ESKOM sells some of this power to the Mozambique government to power an aluminium smelting plant.
