TPCC to have own gas plant, Tanzania
Published: 23 April 2015


Tanzania Portland Cement Company Limited (TPCC) plans to have gas plant are expected to be realised this year to reduce operational costs and overcome issues with erratic power supply.

The TPCC Managing Director, Mr Alphonso Rodriguez, told local press during the 23rd Annual General Meeting (AGM) that arrangements were underway with a third party to build a gas plant at TPCC. Once completed, he said the company will be assured of reliable supply of power to meet its operational demands.

TPCC 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. (Source: AllAfrica News)
