Artumas se concentre de plus en plus sur la génération d'électricité et sa distribution.

C'est une chose qui m'avait frappé chez Artumas: l'intégration verticale (explo, production gaz, produdtion elec et distrib elec). Je pensais il y qq mois que si MAU rachetait Artumas, ils dégageraient vite la partie aval. Ce qui se passe maintenant, c'est Artumas qui a dégagé la partie amont pour se concentrer sur l'aval...

Ils venulent conncter 45 000 nouveaux clients d'ici 5 ans en plus des 16 000 actuels en remettant eu gout du jour le projet de 300mw.

Pour le capex, il serait financé pour moitié par le gouverenement hollandais et pour moitié par la banque d'invest hollandaise....

Pour le moment, il y a 7.5m$ accordé par le gouv Tanzanien pour dévélopper l'elec en miliu rural....

Tanzania firm hopes to add 45,000 customers to grid

DAR ES SALAAM (Reuters) - A Tanzanian subsidiary of Canada's Artumas Group Inc says it hopes to add 45,000 customers to Tanzania's electricity grid in five years if it can secure approval and funds for the project.

The Umoja Light Company, a part of Artumas Tanzania, has been serving about 16,500 customers for the past two and a half years in Mtwara and Lindi in the southeast of the east African nation, where it generates 12 megawatts (MW) from natural gas.

Artumas Tanzania discovered a gas deposit in Mnazi Bay, but has put plans for a 300 MW power plant on hold due to the global economic crisis, which made it harder to access financing.

Umoja Light has been planning the project with the government for the last four years, but is waiting for the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority to grant it the necessary licences and approvals.

"We are hopeful that this will happen in the near future," Richard Tainton, Umoja Light's general manager, told Reuters late on Wednesday on the sidelines of a regional infrastructure and energy conference in Dar es Salaam.

"Over the first five years ... once the project gets going ... we would add a further 45,000 households," he said.

"We would quadruple the number of customers on the grid."

Tainton said the company had so far invested between $5 million and $10 million. The project involves adding two 33 kV lines spanning some 200 km (124 miles) to the grid, and another 132 kV line of about 70 km connecting Mtwara to nearby towns.

"We have a capital project of over $50 million which will involve connecting the Masasi network to Mtwara grid that will bring power towards the towns of Newala, Tandahimba, Nachingwea, Ruangwa and Ndanda," Tainton said in an interview.

Umoja Light's plan is part of wider efforts to create more electricity connections in a country where just 14 percent of its 40 million people are hooked up to the national grid.

Tanzania's electricity demand stands at 787 MW and is expected to rise to just over 900 MW by the end of the year.

Tainton said the project would use funds pledged by the Dutch government, which he said would meet half the construction costs, and from FMO, the Netherlands Development Bank.

But he said they were also seeking money elsewhere.

"We're in the process of seeking this, but we also need regulatory approval before we can close this deal," he added.

Artumas Tanzania said in July it had secured $7.5 million from the government to boost its rural electrification project
