In the past the prepayment meters used by customers of the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco) were manufactured in South Africa – but this will change now that an agreement between the utility and meter manufacturer Conlog has been reached. From now on these meters will be manufactured and serviced in Tanzania.
This will improve Tanesco’s plans for rollout across the country.
The new arrangements will suit both Tanesco and Conlog, which will now be able to offer local facilities for both supply and repair of meters, leading to quicker turnaround times. Meters will be stored at Achelis (Tanganyika) Limited, an independent local company representing several manufacturers.
