    Tanzania will add around 240 megawatts of power to its national grid in the next 18 months as it seeks to ease the country-wide power shortage, the Citizen Newspaper reports Friday.

    Plans were underway to purchase a 100 MW turbine to be installed in Dar es Salaam, and another 60 MW turbine for Mwanza to cater for the areas around Lake Victoria. Tanzania's vast gold mines are located around Lake Victoria.

    The third turbine will be installed in Dodoma, Tanzania's capital.

    Tanzania is grappling with a severe power crisis and the national power utility, Tanesco, began power-rationing program this week. The shortage is being blamed on lower water levels at the country's hydroelectric power stations.

    Tanzania is Africa's third largest gold producer and the continent's fourth leading coffee producer.
