South Africa’s influence on the Cahora Bassa hydroelectric project was ubiquitous. In fact, without its intervention, there arguably would never have been a dam there. Pretoria provided critical start-up capital, and South African investors were instrumental in putting together ZAMCO, the consortium that funded and built the dam.

Southern African governments were also involved in an agreement stating that Portugal would build and operate a hydroelectric generating station at Cahora Bassa together with the high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system required to bring electricity to the border of South Africa.

South Africa, on the other hand, undertook to build and operate the Apollo converter station and part of the transmission system required to bring the electricity from the South African.

Mozambique has further cut electricity supplies to South Africa after a fault at the Cahora Bassa hydropower dam, the sub-Saharan region’s biggest.
