The Government of Tanzania intends to establish, operate and manage a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, which is a cost effective sustainable transportation system for Dar es Salaam City to ensure fast and orderly flow of traffic on urban streets and roads. The Dar es Salaam BRT project follows the current land use plan that shows an extension of planned residential areas in the north-west direction along Ali Hassan Mwinyi road, in the south direction along Kilwa road and in Tabata area.
The plan also shows an extension of unplanned residential areas in the west along Morogoro road and in the south-west corridor along Nyerere road. There is also an extension of industrial areas north along Ali Hassan Mwinyi road, along Nyerere road and part of Mikocheni Area. These areas constitute Phase 1, 2, and 3 of the BRT System. Phase 1, Morogoro Road BRT infrastructure has been completed with financing from the World Bank and the Government of Tanzania.
Case StudyUbungo gas plant for generating electricity
From 2003 through 2005 Tanzania experienced severe drought all over the country, resulting in lower water levels in the major hydropower reservoirs. Tanzania Electric Supply Company Limited (TANESCO) received funds from the government of the United Republic of Tanzania to finance, on urgent basis, the emergency power generation project to bridge the gap of power supply in the National grid, caused by the drought.
TANESCO engaged M/S Lahmeyer International of Germany for consulting services and contracted M/S Wärtsilä Company of Finland for the construction of a TANESCO owned 100MW Gas Plant at Ubungo.
The Gas Plant is using locally available Songo Songo gas as a source of fuel. The Plant is installed with twelve generating units each with a capacity of 8.73MW totalling an installed capacity of 104 MW. The available capacity for twelve generating units is 102.5 MW. The Plant is interconnected with the National Grid through the Ubungo National Grid Substation.
