Portuguese group Mota-Engil has been awarded the contract to build a stretch of railway 145 kilometres long in southern Malawi for Brazilian group Vale under the terms of a US$703 million contract, the group said in a statement field with Portuguese stock market regulator CMVM.

According to the statement, the Portuguese group said it would build the railway line in 27 months.

Mota-Engil is already involved in several construction works in Malawi including the construction of the delayed M1 Lilongwe-Nsipe Road, the Nsanje port and it also built president Bingu wa Mutharika’s mansion in Thyolo as a gift.

Mota-Engil also said that, following its efforts to increase its activities in emerging markets its portfolio of orders in Africa had grown to a total of US$1.2 billion including the project for the Brazilian mining group Vale.
