Based on the capacity of the Power Station, Thomassen provided the Plant Manager to ensure effective and efficient management, operation and maintenance of the Power Station.
Other operational site staff were the Tanzanian employees employed by Dowans. It would be our policy to train and promote the local staff to the required positions as to reduce the dependence on foreign staff in the long term.
