TMECL was requested by YAPI MERKEZI  Turkish Company building a Tanzanian Standard Gauge Railway between Dar es Salaam and Morogoro to look for and sourcing suitable ballast material quarry. Initially,  YAPI MERKEZI was looking for either limestone and or granite gneiss. TMECL team started to look for these materials at Lugoba area where both rocks exist. YAPI MERKEZI  later decided to opt for Granite Gneiss.

After YAPI MERKEZ decision on the granite gneiss ballast, TMECL team assisted in the acquisition of good properties, the search and ascertaining of the legality of the properties and finally surveyed the boundaries of the selected company the YAATE Investment Co Ltd. Professional studies including geological, geotechnical and geophysical studies, were conducted to ascertain and conclude on the viability of the gneiss and the tonnage.

The TMECL staff also assisted/advised both companies on the Environmental Impact Assessment clearance, the safety, occupational and health issues, social issues with the local people, management issues till the fruitful signing of the YAATE Investment Co Ltd – YAPI MERKEZI contract. TMECL will remain and continue to serve both companies for the smooth running of the Lugoba quarry and the National Railway Standard Gauge Projects.
