Over 18 months, ESB International will help in the design and implementation of TANESCO's centralised customer contact centre in Dar es Salaam.
The contract is funded by the World Bank under its Tanzania Energy Development and Access Project (TEDAP) programme. ESB International emerged the best through a competitive bidding process.

She said, "We are pleased to award this contract to ESB International and look forward to continuing to solidify a good working relationship with them. We anticipate tapping into their contact centre expertise to help to manage our business and continue to improve its performance over the coming 18 months."
Ollie Brogan, ESB International. managing director said, "Winning this contract reflects the depth of expertise ESB International has, which increasingly puts us in a good position to win business in highly competitive world markets."
"This contract will demonstrate our in-depth knowledge of electricity utility operations and of leveraging IT and telecoms technology to support an efficient and more enhanced customer service offering," he said. ESB International is basd in Dublin.
The TEDAP World Bank programme was launched to improve the quality and efficiency of the electricity service provision in Tanzania, and to establish a sustainable basis for energy access expansion and renewable energy development in the country.
One of Tanzania's biggest challenges is its under-developed energy infrastructure. Its electricity power supply is unreliable and only 15% of the population is connected to the national grid.
