Background

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."[1]

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.
