Project Brief - Kenya - Thika Thermal Power Project


Construction and operation of an 87 MW thermal power plant located on land owned by The Kenya Power and Lighting Company Limited (“KPLC”) in the Athi River region 35 km from Nairobi. The plant comprises 5 heavy fuel oil generators that can be converted to natural gas if gas becomes available, and a 7 MW steam turbine. The steam turbine increases the efficiency of the plant and thus reduces carbon emissions. The project will supply electricity to KPLC under a 20 year PPA.
