    Hivi hakuna wazalendo wenye uwezo wa kufanya CONSORTIUM wakanunua hizi investments?

    Hao MAFISADI wanaoficha vijisenti vyao huko nje, kwanini wasitumie hiyo akiba kuwanunua hawa wawekezaji? Naona wawekezaji wetu wanapasiana wao kwa wao na nchi yetu imekuwa shamba la bibi!

    Watz wenye uwezo wapo,tatizo wakati mwingine ni namna taarifa zinavyojulikana. Unaweza shangaa kuona taarifa kama hiyo inajulikana ulaya mapema zaidi na inaporudi bongo,wazungu tayari wako ofisini wanachapa mzigo.

    Unakumbuka issue ya madini,tume ilipomaliza kazi,yule mzungu aitwaye---- alipata habari za tume kabla yetu.

    700bn/- project to end power blues

    The Guardian Reporter

    Tanzania`s power woes may become history following a planned three-year 700bn/- project to connect power from the Mtwara natural gas deposits to the national grid.
    This was disclosed by the Minister for Energy and Minerals, William Ngeleja in a telephone interview with the Guardian yesterday.
    The Minister said: “This is one of our short term projects which needs to mature as soon as possible. Our target is to ensure that the 300MW are connected to the national grid by 2012,” stressed Ngeleja.
    According to him, completion of power transmission line to the national grid would improve power supply in country, including those regions in peripherals like Kigoma and Rukwa.
    The Minister was responding to The Guardian’s query as to why huge deposits of natural gas in Mtwara region were being inadequately exploited forcing gas processing plants in the area to operate below capacity due to low consumption demand.
    “We are still discussing with the key stakeholders including Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco), the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC), mining interests and private sector financial capital sources, regarding construction of a large-scale –300 MW generation facilities in Mtwara and associated high-voltage interconnection to the national power grid,” Ngeleja said.
    Without disclosing the names of the said strategic investors, the minister further said: “So far there are some strategic stakeholders who have shown interest to embark on putting up the power transmission lines from Mtwara to Kidatu.”
    According to Ngeleja, implementation of the project, was delayed due to the global economic crunch.
    The plants’ operations initially aimed at reducing power woes in the southern regions and the country at large had encountered some obstacles, the major one being the minimal level of power consumers, The Guardian has learnt.
    A survey carried out recently in the region showed that while there are extensive natural gas reserves in four different gas wells, only one is currently operating. The four wells are operated by Artumas Group, a gas processing firm based along Mnazi Bay in Mtwara.
    According to Artumas Group’ Plant Operator, Elias Fundisha the well in use has the capacity to produce 18,000 kilopascals (kPa) (units of air pressure measurement) but due to low demand in Mtwara, only 7,000 kPas are pumped to the electricity generation power plant in Mtwara municipality which cannot consume it all.
    “The demand for gas-powered electricity supply is still low, and this reality greatly affects the production capacity of the plant. Worse still at our power generating plant we are also forced to reduce the amount of gas to 280kPa from the pumped 7,000kPa,”
    According to the Chief Plant Operator, Nyomwa Kilemo, the gas processing plant in Mtwara has the capacity to process about two million cubic feet of gas per day. However, the investor has yet to fully tap the gas potential as hardly 6MW of power are produced for Mtwara municipality, which started enjoying electricity generated by the gas-powered engines in 2007.
    Kilemo, however, expressed optimism that demand would increase when Lindi and other areas in the southern area are electrified. “Under the initiative power production would increase to 15MW once Lindi is connected as well,” he said.
    He spoke of the likelihood of sharp increase of natural gas consumption should power generated in Mtwara be connected to the national power grid.
    Sources within Artumas Group further maintained that Artumas had completed a preliminary feasibility study of high-voltage transmission interconnection options from Mtwara to the national power grid. Tanesco managing director Dr Idris Rashid was quoted explaining that Tanesco needed at least 105 extra MW for the national grid each year to meet peak time demand, now standing at 787 MW but expected to reach 1,331 MW by 2014. Currently, the total amount of power supplied through the national grid is 595 MW.
    So far, Songas plant is generating about 190 MW at its Dar es Salaam-based plant, where TANESCO also runs its own gas-powered plant that produces another 100 MW of electricity.
    By the end of this year, the national electric firm had a plan to add another 45 MW from natural gas to the grid, followed by another 200 MW by 2010.

    Then na gas yote hiyo bado hatuna umeme na uliopo ni very expensive, migawo kila siku na less than 15% ya nchi ndio ina umeme,nafikiri hii ni laana!
