    Kuna article kwenye ipp media inasema DOWANS inataka kuuzwa kwa kampuni nyingine ya marekani SYMBION.

    Jamani tunachezeshwa mchezo huohuo kila siku mpaka lini.

    Nimejaribu kufuatilia website ya hii SYMBION, pale chini imeandikwa "© 2011 Symbion Power LLC":

    Kufuatilia domain yao ya symbion-power.com, naona umekuwa regisrered 2005 na inaexpire november mwaka huu 2011.

    Halafu serikali inasema kuwa hii ndio kampuni itakayosaidia Tanzania kutoka kwenye tatizo la umeme?.....kweli jamani? experience ya hiyo kampuni iko wapi?

    -----
    Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Energy and Minerals, David Jairo anasema kuwa discussions zimefikia final stage "Discussions have reached the final stage, and we expect to unveil more details on the acquisition of the Dowans plant today,"

    Wakati kwenye hiyo website ya SYMBION inasema kazi ilianza August mwaka jana "True partnership drives everything we do. The result has been successful transmission line, substation, and training projects in the challenging construction environments of Iraq and Afghanistan and new work in Tanzania that began in August 2010."

    Akija January wakowapi? mbona hatukuisikia hii SYMBION miezi ile tulipokuwa tunalia na kuilipa DOWANS?

    Halafu ukiangalia profile za owners http://www.symbion-power.com/symbion/team.html, wamekaa ki CIA CIA tu....kuna kuzalisha umeme kweli hapo?

    - Chairman wa hiyo SYMBION power holdings ana distinguished military career as an Officer in the Scotts Guards and for the British Special Air Services (SAS).

    -CEO wa kampuni yupo hivi Since 2003 Paul has been at the forefront of US wartime contracting efforts.

    - Chairman wa african branch/tanzania nae He also served as Special Assistant to President Clinton in charge of African Affairs at the national Security Council.

    Kwa hiyo na umeme tunaupataje tenaa?

    Over 200 Tanzanians to train in modern power distribution
    Over 200 Tanzanians will be trained in modern and international technologies related to fixing electricity distribution and transmission lines and systems.

    The training programme is part of a two-year electrification project to be implemented by two US-based power firms, Symbion and PIKE in Tanzania.

    Symbion chief executive officer Paul Hinks told 'The Guardian' recently in Ihado State, US, that before implementing the project, the two companies had decided to introduce specialised training to expose some selected Tanzanians to the US standards of fixing power distribution lines and systems.

    "We want them to get necessary knowledge on how to implement the project according to international standards. We believe this is the best way to improve Tanzania's power distribution systems, thus enhance people's access to consistent power supply," said Hinks in an exclusive interview.

    As part of project implementation, three Tanzanians Isaac Babu, Charles Mhalula and Damas Mpangiri are now undergoing specialised training at the Northwest Lineman College (NLC) of US to learn US techniques and standards of fixing electricity lines and systems.

    After a two-month training programme, according to Hinks, the trained Tanzanians will return home and start training other Tanzanians at a special school to be set up in Morogoro as part of the Symbion/PIKE project commissioned under the US-financed funding mechanism, Millennium Challenge Account (MCA)-Tanzania.

    "They will return to Morogoro where they will train local people at the Symbion/PIKE power centre," said the company's CEO, adding: "In groups of 15-20, the trainees will complete a two-week, multi-disciplinary programme, after which they will gain hands-on experience at one of Symbion/PIKE's 26 project sites across Tanzania."

    Over 200 Tanzanians are expected to be trained at Morogoro's Symbion/PIKE school, which is currently under construction, according to the official, who said they decided to start with the training of Tanzanian linemen because of a "predicted" shortage of labour in the course of implementing the project.

    "A training component is out of the contract awarded to us by MCC but we thought it is a worthwhile idea to train Tanzanians first using our own funds. The issue is not to come to Tanzania, implement the project and go back to US but we feel obliged to help Tanzanians acquire US skills and standards on power transmission and distribution," he noted.

    For his part, PIKE electric chief executive officer Eric Pike, while praising Tanzanian government's efforts in getting the country out of power blues through alternative sources of energy-gas, solar, wind, hydro etc, said practical strategies were vital to help low-income Tanzanians connected to the national power grid.

    "No doubt, Symbion/PIKE project will improve distribution and transmission systems…but extra efforts are required to take electricity from the improved systems down to rural households," said Pike.

    Approximately 215,000 people in 366 communities across Tanzania Mwanza, Morogoro, Tanga, Mbeya, Iringa, Dodoma are expected to benefit from the project, whose construction works are scheduled to start in April this year.

    US firms win tender for power lines extension to four regions
    By Mike Mande
    Two US-based energy firms have secured $65 million for the construction of a power transmission line to four regions of Tanzania.

    Pike Electric Corporation and Syimbion Power LLC will construct and expand approximately 2,880km of distribution lines to Mwanza, Tanga, Dodoma, Mbeya and Iringa regions of the country and expects to complete construction in two years time.

    The two firms were already working collaboratively on a three separate projects in Tanzania valued at nearly $19 million.

    Collectively, the companies have been awarded nearly $84 million in distribution powerline projects including engineering, material procurement and construction.

    In recent history, American construction companies have been noticeable by their absence in Africa, and the landscape has been dominated by firms from China.
    Pike and Symbion, as well as other American companies, intend to change things and are expected to be a fixture in Tanzania and East African countries for many years to come.

    Eric Pike, chairman and chief executive officer of Pike Electric Corporation told The EastAfrican in Dar es Salaam last week that the firm will be part of the electric infrastructure build out in Tanzania.

    Mr Pike said that the energy firm will employ and train Tanzanians in modern construction techniques to provide reliable power throughout this great country.

    The construction of these projects will begin in early next year. The project will take approximately two years to complete.

    Paul Hinks, the chief executive of Symbion said that this will be their fourth contract awarded in Tanzania this year and is the second under the Millennium Challenge Account-Tanzania.

    Mr Hinks said that Millennium Challenge has entrusted Symbion with almost $100 million of electrification work across the country, funded by the American people.

    "Other components of the Energy Projects include the manufacture and installation of a new 100 megawatt submarine power cable linking Zanzibar to Mainland Tanzania," he said.

    Symbion Power and the French firm Areva have also been awarded a $45 million contract for the substation work in Zanzibar. That contract was awarded in April 2010, and the fabrication process is already well underway.

    Bernard Mchomvu, the chief executive of Millennium Challenge said the contract awards represent the achievement of yet another important milestone in the ongoing implementation of the $206 million MCC Energy Project.
    Mr Mchomvu said that another key component of the MCC Compact is the construction or rehabilitation of 25 power substations on Tanzania Mainland and in Unguja.

    In addition to the Energy Project, the MCC Compact also includes major components that will provide significant assistance in the transport and water sectors.

    French-American firm wins 67.5bn/- Tanzania power project
    By THE GUARDIAN REPORTER
    A French-American joint venture company has won the tender to construct or rehabilitate 24 power substations throughout mainland Tanzania and on the island of Unguja.

    Provisions in the tender contract awarded to a joint venture between the U.S. firm Symbion Power LLC and the French company Areva also instruct the joint venture to manufacture and install a new 100 megawatt submarine power cable between mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar, according to the U.S. embassy.

    The $45 million (about Tsh. 67.5bn/-) contract was awarded by the Millennium Challenge Account Tanzania (MCA-Tanzania).

    The funding is part of a $698 million grant to the country by the United States allocated in 2008 under the Millennium Challenge Account to fund water, energy and infrastructure in Tanzania.

    Out of this MCA allocation, a total of $206 million was set aside for energy projects.

    The U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania, Alfonso Lenhardt, and Deputy Permanent Secretary to the Treasury Joseph Odo Haule, presided over the signing of the new energy contract in Dar es Salaam yesterday.

    The firms will construct or rehabilitate 24 power substations throughout the mainland and on Unguja.

    Ambassador Lenhardt said MCA-Tanzania awarded the contract only after a vigorous, full and open international competition. The best way for any firm to remain competitive in this global economy is to constantly look for new markets for its goods and services, compete fiercely and fairly for new contracts, and then deliver successfully on their commitments.

    As he signed the contract on behalf of both joint venture partners, Paul Hinks, Chief Executive Officer Symbion Power, said Areva would design and supply substation equipment to 26 sites in Tanzania. He noted the MCC-sponsored electrification project had facilitated Symbion's expansion to the African continent: "Many U.S. contractors believe that it is impossible to compete for work in Africa against their counterparts from Asia and South Africa. I believe that the award of this contract despite fierce competition disproves this theory and I would encourage more U.S. companies to pursue the huge amount of infrastructural development work that exists across the African continent.

    Bernard Mchomvu, Chief Executive Officer for MCA-Tanzania, said the contract is part of the $206 million Energy Project under the Millennium Challenge Compact.

    Other components of the Energy Projects include the manufacture and installation of a new 100 Megawatt submarine power cable linking Zanzibar to the Mainland. That contract was awarded in April, and the fabrication process is already well underway.

    Another key component of the MCC CompactÆs Energy Project is the extension and upgrading of approximately 1,600 kilometres of power transmission and distribution lines in seven regions throughout the country, including Mwanza, Tanga, Dodoma, Morogoro, Mbeya, and Iringa. The public tender process for the tender and distribution activity is now also nearing completion and contract award is expected this calendar quarter.

    True Partnership.
    We also provide education and training and actively encourage local men and women in their own business ventures. True partnership drives everything we do. The result has been successful transmission line, substation, and training projects in the challenging construction environments of Iraq and Afghanistan and new work in Tanzania that began in August 2010.

    Special Projects

    Partnering with the Corporate Council on Africa's (CCA) Health Initiative to reduce the risk of HIV/AIDS transmission
    Next Project
    Previous Project
    Location: Tanzania
    Capabilities:
    Timetable: Project began 2010
    Status: Ongoing
    The Corporate Council on Africa's (CCA) Health Initiative has partnered with Symbion Power to reduce the risk of HIV/AIDS transmission in Symbion Power's area of operation in Tanzania.

    Symbion Power and CCA have developed SAMBAZA UMEME SI UKIMWI (Swahili for "Transmit Electricity, Not AIDS") or "SUSU" for short, an innovative and flexible approach for workplace and community-based HIV prevention that will set the standard for corporate engagement in construction and other infrastructure projects in Tanzania and for Symbion Power's future operations in Africa.


    The principles and objectives informing SUSU align with Tanzania's Second National Multi-Sectoral Strategic Framework on HIV and AIDS 2008-2012 and the second reauthorization of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief ("PEPFAR II").


    SUSU will achieve clear and measurable objectives for reducing the impact of gender norms, attitudes, and behaviors that drive the HIV/AIDS epidemic and, through the provision of training and skill building, strengthen human resources for health in communities across Tanzania to respond to the HIV/AIDS crisis.


    At the core of Symbion's business strategy is its extensive investment in developing human resources in Symbion's areas of operation. As a company with expertise in the developing world, Symbion further recognizes that health and economic growth are deeply interconnected, both in the workplace and in the communities to which it brings power lines, and with which its workforce interacts. Symbion's commitment to empowering Tanzanians in their fight against HIV/AIDS is parallel to its commitment to capacity building and skills transfer in its power and electricity projects.


    SUSU's strategy for reducing and mitigating the transmission of HIV/AIDS in these communities is based on the recognition of two facts: mobile workforces are at high-risk for contracting and transmitting HIV; and communities often lack adequate human resources necessary to respond to the epidemic. The program will have two primary technical components:

    (1) an internal component concentrating on Symbion Power's own workforce;

    (2) an external component which will provide training and skill building for community health workers to initiate or expand HIV/AIDS prevention programs in their own communities.

    For the internal workforce-focused component, Symbion will build a permanent center offering electrical construction training that will incorporate HIV/AIDS education and prevention information into its curriculum. Because Symbion's workforce will be predominantly male, the HIV/AIDS curriculum will address aspects of male normative behavior, such as the perception of risk, that contribute to perpetuating the epidemic. The external component will complement and bolster the Tanzanian government's national efforts to augment its health workforce with community-based, non-clinical HIV/AIDS prevention advocates and counselors. The community trainings will utilize gender-based HIV/AIDS education and awareness modules and methodologies that address normative behaviors of both men and women shown to contribute to the transmission of HIV/AIDS.


    Specifically, SUSU will work to encourage the reduction of high-risk activities associated with HIV/AIDS transmission, provide education on proven prevention strategies and practices, and promote health-seeking behaviors amongst its workforce and in the communities where Symbion will operate.
