Águas da Região Metropolitana de Maputo

Águas da Região Metropolitana de Maputo (AdRMM), established just over two years ago, represents the political, economic, and social effort to respond to the modernization of water management in the metropolitan region, with a decisive role of over more than two decades, to ensure a reliable and sustainable supply of quality water to the cities of Maputo, Matola and Vila de Boane. I have the privilege of witnessing the tireless dedication of our employees daily, who are committed to ensuring that every drop of water reaches all the residents of the region.
It is with an indescribable sense of pride that I preside over a bold administration, truly committed to continuous transformation and improvement. This resilience is expressed daily by a team of dedicated men and women who represent and honor the Mozambican entrepreneurial spirit. It is this extraordinary team whose passion and commitment are second to none, and who are at the forefront of our effort to provide excellent water service to the Mozambican people.
Together, we contribute to the sustainable development of Mozambique, facing challenges with courage and determination. This pride and determination strengthen our will to continue to serve our community with maximum efficiency to make it more resilient and prosperous. At AdRMM, we are more than just a water supply company – we are a reflection of the Mozambican dedication, effort, and spirit, which drives us to design a better future for all of us.
During these years, AdRMM has remained faithful to its obligations and social responsibilities towards the State, Shareholders, Customers, Employees, Suppliers, and Communities. Together, we strive to make water the main driver of development in Mozambique.
Always looking to the future, our vision is to consolidate national leadership in the quality of service provided to citizens, boosting innovation, and sustainability, training a new generation of talent, and building relationships of trust. We reaffirm our commitment to maintaining the quality standards that have been recognized externally, as a result of the rigorous and pragmatic work of the AdRMM team, a team to which I am proud to belong.

Our History

May 9

Tissot surrendered his concession rights to John Crosby Ditken Henderson (English), who also supplied the city using the same systems as Tissot.


May 13

The same concession was sold to The Delagoa Bay Development Corporation, Limited, and between 1904 and 1906, this company installed water elevation on the Umbeluzi River to supply the then-city of Lourenço Marques. The company operated these services until 1945.


October 27

The water supply and electricity supply services to the then-city of Lourenço Marques were definitively handed over to the City Council, and the Municipal Water and Electricity Services (SMAE) were created.
