In August 2011, executive chairman of Australia-based Intra Energy Corporation (IEC) Graeme Robertson said that the company was considering a 400 MW coal plant in Dar es Salaam and a 400 MW power plant in Mbeya, sometime in 2013-2018.[1]

As of 2021, the project is still mentioned on Tancoal's website as expected in 2021,[2] but it is not mentioned on IEC's "Tanzania Projects" page.[3] It appears to be shelved or cancelled.
