Geothermal Development Co. (GDC) is planning to undertake the construction of a geothermal power plant in Kenya.
The project is developed in phases.
The project involves the construction of a 600MW geothermal plant. It includes the construction of a powerhouse, a substation, and access roads and the installation of steam generators, turbines, and transthe laying of transmission lines.
In March 2013, a pre-feasibility report was published by GDC.
A detailed surface study comprising of geology, geophysics, surface heat measurement, baseline environmental and social economic assessment has been completed.
Iceland GeoSurvey has been appointed as a technical consultant to the funding and implementing agencies in this project.
The project is funded by Icelandic International Development Agency (ICEIDA) and the Nordic Development Fund (NDF).
On February 4, 2015, ICEIDA issued Expressions of Interest (EoI) for the consulting firms to prepare a conceptual model of the geothermal system with submission date of February 18, 2015.
On June 11, 2015, Efla Engineering Co. was awarded a consulting contract by ICEIDA.
