Malawi - Mozambique - Nacala Rail & Port Project - ESIA Summary - OPSM3
During 2005 and 2006 Vale undertook feasibility studies for the Moatize Coal Project, which included social and environmental diagnostics, and the assessment of logistical alternatives for the alignment of the Nacala Corridor Project. During the feasibility studies phase, when Vale carried out initial social and environmental studies, the Corridor was divided by the borders of the countries Mozambique and Malawi, because of the different environmental legislations and the green- and brownfield sections. This was done to have a specific analysis of each region, considering the size and interference of the project on the direct and indirect areas of influence of the sections.
