NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya invited on Tuesday tenders for the construction of a 10 megawatt wind power project on the outskirts of the capital, after receiving a 20-million-euro ($28.60 million) loan from Spain.
“The Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) invites sealed tenders from eligible candidates for the design, manufacture, supply, delivery, erection, testing and commissioning of 10 MW Ngong II Wind Power Project,” an advertisement in the local Daily Nation said.
Kenya’s energy ministry delegated the responsibility of picking a contractor to KenGen.
The company, which generates some 77 percent of Kenya’s electricity output, commissioned a 5.1 MW wind-sourced project in 2009. ($1=.6992 Euro)
