Last nails in Dowans as Tanesco shifts gear

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam

With its abortive bid for the Dowans power plant now behind it, Tanesco has decided to buy two new generators to inject 160MW of electricity into the national grid and avert a looming power crisis.

Senior officials of the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco) said in Dar es Salaam yesterday that the two new power-generating plants would be installed in Dar es Salaam (100MW) and Mwanza (60MW).

Tanesco distribution manager Declan Mhaiki told the monthly Editors' Forum that tenders for the project would be announced in the next four months, in accordance with the public procurement procedures and rules.
