Construction of a heated, 1.445km-long, 24-inch diameter crude oil pipeline between Uganda and Tanzania which is expected to start pumping Ugandan oil to international markets in three years which is part of the East African Pipeline Project. The oil pipeline would start in Buseruka sub-county, Hoima District, in Uganda’s Western Region. It would travel in a general southeasterly direction to pass through Masaka in Uganda, Bukoba in Tanzania, loop around the southern shores of Lake Victoria, continue through Shinyanga and Siginda, to end in Tanga, Tanzania. This pipeline will be the longest electrically heated crude oil pipeline in the world and will be heated so it can keep highly viscous crude oil liquid enough to flow.

Difference between an Africa Tender & SA Tender

At Leads 2 Business we have two different research Departments in Tenders; South Africa and Africa.

In the Africa Department, we research in 17 different counties. Examples of areas of coverage include Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Eswatini (Swaziland), Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe. These tender opportunities are intended for our clients whose primary business focus is in Africa or alternately for those who wish to expand their company’s coverage, serviceable regions and scope of work into Africa.

Tender notices are sourced throughout Africa via our extensive network of newspapers, online resources and personal contacts. Should a tender be in another language we translate it into English as a courtesy for our subscribers.

Key considerations to our research team are content, timeous acquisition of tender information and the critical details that facilitate ease of communication, more specifically: telephone numbers, postal addresses and e-mail addresses of the contacts on the tender.

In Africa, it is common for a non-refundable fee to be charged to obtain Tender Documents. Africa Tenders also require us to specify “Local Time” next to the closing date and/or site inspection because of the time difference and subscribers must also take note of the dialling codes for the specific region.

Below are examples of an SA Tender and an Africa Tender View:

Uganda’s Standard Gauge Railway Project

posted in: General 2

What is the Uganda Standard Gauge Railway Project?

Uganda is revamping it’s 100-year-old railway lines to improve cargo transport in the country. The 1266 km meter-gauge rail line was built by the British during colonial times to transport copper. The condition of the rail network deteriorated due to economic instability and political upheaval. The railway line will now boast a length of 1724 km linking the country to the neighbouring countries of Kenya, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.

The railway will consist of 4 major sections:

Malaba–Kampala Section: Also referred to the Eastern Line, this stretches from the border of Kenya at Malaba through Tororo and Jinja to end at Kampala, Uganda’s capital and largest city. Total distance of approximately 215km.

Tororo–Gulu Section: Referred to as the Northern Line this would extend from Tororo and go through Mbale and Lira to Gulu, approximately 400kms in distance.

From Gulu, one line will continue North to Elegu and onto Nimule and Juba in South Sudan. The section in Uganda measures approximately 107km. Another extension stretches from Gulu to Pakwach to end at Goli the Border of the DRC with a distance of approximately 190km.

Kampala–Mpondwe Section: This referred to as the Western Line, starting in Kampala and passes through Bihanga in Ibanda District continuing on to Mpondwe at the border with the DRC, a distance of about 430km.

Bihanga–Mirama Hills Section: This also referred to as the South Western Line which stretches from Bihanga, through Ibanda and Mbarara to end at the Mirama Hills at the border with Rwanda, a distance of about 205km.

Costing of this project was quoted at a staggering USh45.6 trillion (approximately US$13.8 billion). Funding has not come easy for this project as Uganda has approached China again in 2019 in a resubmission for a loan which was rejected by China’s Exim bank. The project is now expected to be completed in 2025.

To get more information on this monitor the Project on the Leads 2 Business website PPA 15831.
