Abengoa to develop 132 km transmission line project in Kenya

May 14, 2013

May 14, 2013. Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has been chosen by the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (Ketraco) of the Kenyan Ministry of Energy for an electricity transmission project that includes construction of a 132 km line and extension of an existing substation in Kenya, in a contract worth approximately €32 million.

The project, which is being financed by the African Development Bank, is part of the plan called “Interconnection of Electric Grids of Nile Equatorial Lakes Countries”, which is being developed in Africa and involves the construction of around 769 km of transmission lines in Kenya, Uganda, Ruanda, DRC and Burundi. Abengoa will not retain any interest in the constructed assets.

Abengoa will be responsible for the engineering, construction and commissioning, ensuring the highest levels of quality at every stage of the process. The 132 km line will go from the substation in Lessos, Kenya, to the border with Uganda to connect with the Tororo substation. Abengoa will also extend the Lessos substation and be responsible for its design, construction and commissioning.

The project is scheduled to be completed within 18 months and handed over to the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (Ketraco) in November 2014.

This contract, together with projects previously carried out in Tanzania and Kenya, will strengthen Abengoa’s presence in the African market, reinforcing its position as a leading transmission and distribution contractor.
