Contract No. Ketraco/1/6/09
Remarks Commencement date 1st Quarter of 2010/11
Objectives:

The project is primarily intended to transfer power generated in the coast area to the main load centre around Nairobi, the capital. The Government of Kenya’s electrification target is to add 1 million consumers to the grid over the next 5 years. This will require substantial investments in both generation and transmission. Substantial new thermal generation capacity is planned in Mombasa. The project is designed to evacuate this new power capacity to Nairobi.

Scope:
  • Lot 1: Construction of 29km of 220kV double circuit overhead transmission line from Rabai Substation to future Mariakani substation and about 163km of 400kV double circuit overhead transmission line from future Mariakani substation to the Tsavo river. 
  • Lot 2: Construction of 52km of 220kV double circuit overhead transmission line from Embakasi Substation to future Isinya substation and about 230km of 400kV double circuit overhead transmission line from future Isinya substation to the Tsavo river. 
  • Lot 3: Extension and modification to the 220kV substations at Embakasi and Rabai to accommodate two new overhead transmission line circuits from Embakasi to Rabai, including 8km of 220kV cable from Embakasi substation.
