Kenya: 310MW Lake Turkana Wind Farm Nearing Completion

Posted on : Tuesday , 2nd May 2017

Nairobi — The Lake Turkana Wind Power Project in Loiyangalani, Marsabit County is set to be completed in two months, paving the way for a 310MW injection in the grid.

 
The project will provide reliable, low-cost wind power to Kenya's national grid for 20 years through 365 wind turbines each with a capacity of 850 kW.
 
State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu has said the development of the wind farm is ahead of schedule.
 
"In the coming months, a 105 MW Public Private Partnership (PPP) project will be completed, thereby increasing the amount of electricity available to Kenyans at a much cheaper rate," said Esipisu.
 
Lake Turkana wind power farm will be connected to the national grid through a 428 km, 400kV transmission line that extends from Suswa to the Wind Power site via Naivasha, Gilgil, Nyahururu, Rumuruti, Maralal and Baragoi.
 
"Despite initial wayleave challenges, the construction of the transmission line is currently being fast tracked to enable dispatch of the wind farm."
