Tanzania: Twiga Cement to have own gas plant

The Tanzania Portland Cement Company plans to have gas plant this year to reduce costs.

Alphonso Rodriguez, managing director, Tanzania Portland Cement said arrangements were underway with a third party to build a gas plant at the company’s site.

The plant will provide a reliable power supply and offset problems associated with the  current erratic supply.

Current demand is rated at 32MW and the gas plant would then come as an extra source of energy to compensate additional requirements and current fluctuations in power supply.

“The company’s investment in alternative sources of energy will ensure the reliability and quality of power supply,” he said adding that the initiative will contribute significantly to lowering the cost of doing business.
