CANADA’S Artumas Group Inc (AGI) has said it expects a 300 megawatts (MW) natural gas-powered project it is working on in Mtwara Region to become operational in 2012.

The company’s Chief Executive, Steve Mason, said in an interview here that first stage feasibility work has already been concluded, but ’’we are looking at approximately four years of project development.’’

’’So hopefully, as we move towards 2012, we will be up,’’ he added.

Artumas, along with the government, is currently conducting a comprehensive feasibility study into the scheme, which will also involve the building of more than 500 kilometres of high voltage lines from Mtwara.
