Tanzania’s power utility company has announced that the Julius Nyerere Hydropower Project (JNHPP) has successfully begun electricity generation trials after connections with the transmission lines of the Chalinze substation in the Coast region.

The Tanzania Electric Supply Company Limited (TANESCO), a government-owned power utility company, said in a statement Tuesday that about 400 kW of electricity had been transported from the JNHPP to the substation.

The government of Tanzania in 2018 signed a joint construction contract with Arab Contractors and El-Sewedy from Egypt for the JNHPP, which has an installed capacity of 2,115 MW.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Energy Doto Biteko said in September last year that construction of the 6.6 trillion Tanzanian shillings (about 2.63 billion U.S. dollars) mega hydropower project will address the current power shortage facing the country.
