Kenya currently has a power capacity deficit whereby at peak demand there is insufficient supply to meet consumer demand. The Kenyan government and the private sector have embarked on an ambitious programme to scale up installed capacity in the country to about 2000MW in the interim.

Civicon has worked with both public and private sector players (IPPs) on various projects and has over the years gained valuable expertise with EPC projects. We have demonstrated the capacity to deliver projects often in remote areas with little or no infrastructure.

We are active in both the power generation as well as power transmission and distribution as evidenced by the many projects we have undertaken building geothermal plants, thermal plants, substations and transmission networks.

Some of our clients include:

  • Ormat (NYSE:ORA), a NYSE listed company engaged in the generation of geothermal power in the Olkaria basin.
  • Wartsila Development & Financial Services Inc, an IPP operating the Kipevu II and Kipevu III power projects in Mombasa.
  • Kengen (NSE: KEGN), a public listed entity and the major power producer in Kenya, Eburru Geothermal Power Station with a generating capacity of 2.3MW, an EPC project.
  • Rabai Power Ltd, an IPP operating a thermal power plant with a capacity of 90MW in the Kenyan coast.
