    Tanzania |

    Power rationing will be history after the completion of a countrywide project worth 58billion/- to refurbish the infrastructure of the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (TANESCO).

    The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry for Energy and Minerals, Mr Eliakim Maswi, told journalists in Dar es Salaam that the project is funded by Finland and the World Bank."The project involves the construction of power substations and laying down the underground cable in the town centres," he said while inspecting project progress in the city.

    Mr Maswi said that the government had already bought a plot formerly owned by United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) located at Upanga in
    Dar es Salaam where a new power substation will be built.

    "The project will also involve the installment of new ten transformers with 15MVA capacity in
    Dar es Salaam," he said.Mr Maswi mentioned the areas where new transformers will be installed as Buguruni, Gongolamboto, Mburahati, Mikocheni and Oysterbay.

    He pointed out that the electric cables with frequent defaults and posts will be replaced and that insulators with defaults will also be changed.Mr Maswi said the renovation will also involve the Sokoine-Ilala 132/33 kV substations to improve power supply to government offices including Prime Minister's and Vice President's offices and the State House as well as the Ocean Road Hospital.

    "We have started enjoying the fruits of the project as the City has not experienced power rationing from June 2011 to date," he said.Mr Maswi said the major challenge was to acquire areas to construct and expand power substations to meet the increasing demand of the energy in urban, saying many people refuse to allocate space for the power utility company to construct power substations.

    "Land encroachers use areas reserved for power infrastructure to conduct business while others have even dared to construct houses and conduct farming activities," he added.

    Yanaweza kuwa ni yale yale maneno ya kila siku.
    Hata Mr. Megawatt aliongea sana haya, na hakuna lilofanyika.

    However, let us wait and see, time will tell

    Tatizo la mgao linatokana na poor distribution system per se au inadequte generation capacity that has failed to keep pace with demand?
