The Tanzania Geothermal Development Company (TGDC), a subsidiary of Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco), is developing the Ngozi geothermal power plant with a planned power generation capacity of 70 megawatts on completion.

The country’s geothermal potential is estimated at 5,000 megawatts electric (MWe), but plans are in place to produce 200 MWe between 2021 and 2025. Of the estimated 70 megawatts total energy expected to be generated from the Ngozi geothermal plant, 30 megawatts will be developed in the initial phase of the project.

TGDC is expected to sell the steam produced from the geothermal wells drilled at the Lake Ngozi site to a consortium comprising the Government of Tanzania.
