Preparations underway for Rufiji hydropower plant in Tanzania

Construction of supporting infrastructure for the proposed 2100-megawatt Stiegler’s Gorge
hydroelectric project on the Rufiji river is about to be completed.

Completion of the basic infrastructure would signify the beginning in earnest of constructing the
reservoir dam and main project just as soon.

This was revealed to Energy minister Medard Kalemani in Dodoma by the special committee that was
set up to supervise implementation of the supporting infrastructure works.

Committee chairman Juma Iddi told the minister that construction of some of the supporting
infrastructure has already been completed, while the rest is in the final stages of construction.

In this regard, the already constructed supporting infrastructure is the Msamvu-Pangawe and
Dakawa-Selous power transmission line, the Pangawe power sub-station and water supply facilities.
