Kinyerezi 1 Power Plant (150 MW)

The commissioning of the Kinyerezi power plant is another important milestone in the growth of Tanzania’s domestic energy sector. The plant, located on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam, can run on both natural gas and jet fuel and is powered by four LM6000PF dual-fuel turbine generators. It will add 150 MW to the national grid, thus helping close the gap between Tanzania’s energy capacity and requirements.

This project was the second collaboration between CSI and Jacobsen Elektro, with CSI tasked with the entire mechanical erection works. CSI was awarded two sub-contracts: first to design, manufacture, inspect, deliver, erect, calibrate and test the liquid fuel and fire water storage tanks; and second to erect, align and assemble the main turbines together with the associated BOP equipment such as pipework.

This project demonstrates once again CSI’s ability to collaborate with partners to deliver turnkey projects for major clients including governments, parastatals, and private companies. The newly-built plant began generating power in October 2015.
