Magamba power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Tanzania and coal.|
The Magamba power station was a proposed 200-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Tanzania.
The map below shows the location of the Magamba, Tanzania, the approximate location of the project.
Magamba power station was a proposed 200 MW coal plant listed in Table 1 of the African Affairs journal article "Competing energy narratives in Tanzania: Towards the political economy of coal" by Thabit Jacob. The table stated that the Magamba project had reserves of 53 million tonnes. According to a note attached to the table, the information was based on "field visits and interviews with government officials in March–August 2016."
There appears to be no other online references to this project since the April 2017 publication, so the project appears to be shelved or cancelled.
