Ethiopia-Kenya - Power Systems Interconnection Project - Annexe 1 - RAP Summary
The Ethiopia – Kenya Transmission Line is a major part of the proposed Ethiopia – Kenya Power Systems Interconnection Project which was conceived by governments of the two countries as a precursor to future energy trade between the two countries and in the region as part of the Eastern Africa Power Pool (EAPP). Representative firms for Ethiopia and Kenya for purposes of project implementation are EEPCo and KETRACO respectively. Feasibility study, Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) studies were undertaken by a German consulting firm, Fichtner in 2009. With the aim of progressing the project further, a joint venture of Tropics of Ethiopia and Gamma Systems Ltd of Kenya were awarded the Contract in April 2011 to review the Fitchner report and update the report given that many changes have taken place in both countries.
