Kikuletwa Potentials for Hydropower Generation

Previous studies show that there is a possibility of developing Kikuletwa I and the cascade downstream that has three potential sites referred to as Kikuletwa II, Kikuletwa III and Kikuletwa IV. The total projected hydropower potential for Kikuletwa I to IV is 17MW. The planned installed capacity after rehabilitation of Kikuletwa I will be 1.9 MW. Kikuletwa II shows a potential of 2 MW, Kikuletwa III shows a potential of 11 MW and Kikuletwa IV shows a potential capacity of 2 MW..

Rehabilitation Strategies of Kikuletwa project

The rehabilitation of Kikuletwa Hydro-power Station and Training Centre is divided into two phases (Phase A and Phase B). Phase one (A) focus at rehabilitating the old electro-mechanical installations of Kikuletwa so that it can be used for training, and establishment of a turbines testing station. Phase B will start at the end of Phase A after the decision to reconstruct Kikuletwa 1 is made..

Project Location

Kikuletwa Hydropower Station lies on the western end of the Sanya Plains, about 20 km south-west of Moshi. Currently Kikuletwa is accessed through a road 20 km earth road from Bomang’ombe  town about 20 km from Moshi town, on the Moshi-Arusha highway and about 70 km from Arusha city. Kilimanjaro International Airport lies only 12 km further west from Kikuletwa.

 Administratively, Kikuletwa I is located in Chemka Village, Masama-Rundugai Ward in Hai District in Kilimanjaro Region, while the cascade area (Kikuletwa II-IV) is located on the border between Hai District and Simanjiro District in Manyara Region.
