    Rufiji Basin Development Authority (RUBADA) and a Chinese firm known as SINOHYDRO yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the development of a hydropower plant at Mpanga river falls in Morogoro Region.
    The plant expected on stream in two years time will generate some 165MW of power.

    The MoU was signed in Dar es Salaam by the RUBADA Board of Directors Chairman Professor Raphael Mwalyosi and the SINOHYDRO Regional Director Qin Chao.

    The function was witnessed by the Authority's Director General, Aloyce Masanja.

    The Mpanga river is a tributary of the Kilombero river starting from Kipengere Mountains enclosing a Catchment area of about 2,546 kilometres with a dam site located at a position encompassing a watershed area of some 2,020 square kilometres.

    Speaking to journalists shortly after signing the MoU, the RUBADA Director General said construction work is to cost USD427 million and that the power generated would be sold to TANESCO for the national grid.

    He said the Exim Bank of China had agreed to finance the construction of the project which will also generate other socio-economic developments such as agriculture as well as availing power to villagers close to the project.

    Hivi RUBADA mimi nilifikiri wanadeal na bonde la Rufiji tu. Inawezekana ss tukawa watu wa kusaini MoU's tu maana kuna nyingine hapa:

    RUSSIAN FIRM TO INVEST $700M IN HYDROPOWER PROJECT


    A Russian utilities company is planning to invest USD 700m in what could be the largest independent hydropower project in Tanzania. Zarubezhstroy Corporation (ZARS) is set to embark on a five-year venture to put up a hydroelectric power (HEP) plant at Rumakali in Iringa Region which.


    [​IMG]ZARS Board of Directors Chairman Razmik Tarzerdyan

    When completed, is expected to cover 20 to 25 per cent of Tanzania's hydropower needs.
    ZARS Board of Directors Chairman Razmik Tarzerdyan intimated to this The Guardian on the sidelines of the two-day Ninth African Investment Forum, which ended in Dar es Salaam yesterday, that the project will initially generate 222 Megawatts (MW) to be fed directly into the national grid.

    He said there would be a massive boom in power supply as production at the plant approached optimal capacity, at which point it will be generating at least 464 MW.
    "The Rumakali HEP initiative will make massive use of transfer technology to leverage the benefits of generation capacity built via the various other ventures ZARS is currently engaged in," he added.
    The Russian power firm, which also produces and supplies equipment to electricity ventures across the globe, has power production operations in several African countries including Libya and Uganda.

    Tarzerdyan revealed that his company is behind the 750-MW Karuma Hydropower Project in Uganda, where it is expected to boost electricity supply appreciably when completed, adding that it also runs several energy sector projects in thehttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif EU, Asia, the Americas and in its native Russia.

    He said the company is committed to improving the welfare of communities in all countries where it operates, "by implementing development projects such as construction of schools in line with our corporate social responsibility policy".

    A second company is meanwhile also exploring the possibility of investing in the energy sector in Tanzania, but this time with underground heating in mind.

    The firm is Kalahari Energy Limited, whose director Moses Banda says they are studying the geothermal potential in and around Lake Tanganyika.

    Briefing Forum delegates on the plans yesterday, Banda explained that they are looking "to broaden our company's energy portfolio by adding to similar investments in Uganda and Malawi".

Kwa wanao jua nielimisheni mana naona hii MoU imesainiwa na rubada na si tanesco does t mean mambo ya kulipa capacity charges kwa tanesco hayapo au?

    MoU or Contract? Can someone explain? Tusipewe matumaini kisha watu wakaishia kufanya 'FEASIBILITY STUDY' kisha wakose financing kwa visingizio vya environment impact!
    Hawa RUBADA wapo kwa zaidi ya miaka 30 na hatujawahi kusikia wamefanya lolote la maana.

    Suala la investors kuja kichwa chini....kisha kuibuka kichwa juu limeshakuwa la kawaida hapa Tanzania. Wengi wa hawa jamaa huwa wana hidden plan (apart from hiyo wanayoingilia na kujifanya kuwekeza) mfano tumewaona wapakistan -bonde la Rufiji na Kilwa waki deal na ukusanyaji wa meno ya tembo badala ya kulima ufuta na mazao ya kilimo kama ilivyoonyesha ktk mikataba yao!!
    Sasa hapa kuna suala la mikataba, other hidden plans, RUBADA na responsible govt channels. RUBADA wako responsible na ardhi ya bonde lote la eneo la pwani hadi Dar achilia mbali Morogoro, lkn wanarukaruka tu kupata 10% hawajui lolote juu ya ujanja wa wazungu na wa asia (hasa wachina). Kazi yao ni ku negotiate deal na mwananchi na kumshawishi bila kumfungua huyu mwananchi akili ajue haki zake na kikubwa juu ya "the best land lease alternative" kama mwekezaji kukodi shamba kwa hisa toka kwa wanavijiji. RUBADA wana struggle kumshawishi mwananchi akubali kumuuzia mchina ardhi (siyo kukodi!!!!!!) kwa bei ya chini yet ili wao wapate cha juu. Inasikitisha sana kwa kweli lkn kitu kimoja tu watanzania hawajui ni kwamba:
    -wageni wanaijua sana nchi yetu in terms of where (ardhini) there is what kuliko sisi wananchi;
    -Kila mzungu au mchina au muAsia anayejifanya anatafiti, huwa ana info nyingi kama baseline na ni lazima ametumwa na watu fulani na yuko trained-wengi wao ni wapelelezi lkn hatuwajui masikini!!!
    -Watafiti wao (wa siri)wanapoondoka, huwa wanakuja watu wengine kujifanya wanataka kuwekeza ktk kitu tofauti wakati wameshajua eneo hilo labda ardhini kuna mali ya aina fulani ambayo ndo wanaitaka zaidi.
    NINGESHAURI SERIKALI IWE NA WATAALAM WAKE YENYEWE HATA KAMA NI WA KUKODI TOKA KTK TAIFA LILILO NA UWEZO (lakini wanakuwa chini ya kiongozi na timu ya watanzania) KISHA IFANYE TAFITI ZA MAKUSUDI KATIKA MAENDEO MBALIMBALI AMBAYO WAWEKEZAJI WANAJIFANYA WAMEYACHAGUA ILI KUTHIBITISHA HAKUNA MADINI AU NYARA NYINGINE ZA SERIKALI ILI KUZIBA possibility ya double exploitation of our resources-kitu ambacho huenda kikawa kinanukia katika miradi mingi ya wawekezaji ikiwamo ule mradi wa kiwanda cha kutengeneza saruji kinachojengwa na wachina katika rasi ya Masoko pwani wilaya ya Kilwa jirani kabisa na Bandari ya Kilwa.
