President Filipe Nyusi of Mozambique today addressed the reception committee assembled at Mozambique Railways (CFM) central station in Maputo to celebrate the delivery of the first five locomotives and 55 wagons of a total of 300 items being bought and imported from the United States.
This modern rolling stock will increase CFM’s cargo capacity in the southern region of the country from the current 1,500 to 2,500 tons per train.
With President Nyusi noting that the investment of about US$40 million would help the company better monetise equipment, CFM Chairman Miguel Matabel said that the investment was part of the company’s strategic plan.
CFM foresees the entire purchase – of more than 300 items – arriving in Mozambique from the US by October 2019.
