Wind Wire: State firm to build transmission line

KENYA: State-owned Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (Ketraco) is to build the transmission line for the 300MW Lake Turkana wind power plant in northern Kenya.

The original plan was for the Nairobi-based consortium behind the project to build the line, but Ketraco will now take over as part of its strategy to open areas offering the greatest potential for renewable energy. Construction of the line is due to start in September, about the same time as the consortium hopes to reach financial close on the plant itself.
