Citing “The New Times”, reports that the Nyabihu-based firm becomes the first local company to invest in hydro power generation. The power generated from the plant. Which is to be built on River Giciye in Nyabihu, will be used to power the tea factories, while the surplus will be sold to national energy and water utility, EWSA.

The company has signed a contract with Horizon Group, whose construction arm will partner with Tanzania-based electricity production firm, Aquifer to construct the plant. It is expected to be completed in the next 18 months.
