The transmission line is intended to evacuate 44.8MW power generated from Malagarasi Hydropower plant to Kigoma. The 400/132/33kV substation will be constructed at Kidahwe in Kigoma District Council. The line will align from Malagarasi to Mazungwe (20km) in a 20m wide corridor acquired by TANESCO under the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA) and from Mazungwe to Kidahwe (33km) be aligned in a new wayleave to be acquired by the project. The proposed wayleave will go parallel with the proposed 400kV line from Kigoma to Mpanda under the North West Grid project (NWG). Therefore, the total distance of the transmission line is expected to be 53km.
