Problems Facing the Tana River Projects

The following Problems Facing the Tana River Projects

  • Shortage of capital to purchase spare parts which has interfered with maintenance of
    machinery in the power house.
  • Fluctuation of the water levels of R. Tana due to drought in the catchment areas and
    evaporation due to flowing through the dry Nyika region which affects power
    generation.
  • Siltation of dams which occasionally blocks the tail race tunnels leading to a low
    volume of water and dredging is required which is expensive.
  • Inadequate skills and technology which causes failure to maximise on power
    production.
