SMEC collaborated with Gatsby Africa and the Tanzania National Development Corporation (NDC) to prepare detailed designs to power a new 96ha industrial estate at Kibaha District, 30km west of Dar es Salaam. To inform the clients strategic planning for the site, the SMEC team also undertook a detailed assessment of the sites water requirements.
The proposed site posed several challenges, namely lack of access to a reliable power source, poor water supply and inadequate water storage. SMEC undertook all necessary surveys and investigations to determine the optimum location for all new electrical and water infrastructure including provision for planned future upgrades. Harmonious interface between the power and water functions enabled the team to simulate load requirements for the next 35 years.
