Kenya: Tatu City Hires US Consultant to Plan Power Supply

Tatu City has appointed US-based Power Engineers Inc to consult on development of electricity for use within the Sh240 billion industrial complex.

The deals takes the project a step higher to its implementation, having come just two months after another agreement worth Sh400 million was entered into with China's Sinohydro to set up basic infrastructure for water, sewerage and temporary road works relating to the first phase of the project.

"Tatu City, the mixed-use satellite city near Nairobi has selected Power Engineers Inc to consult on the development's power requirements. Power Engineers is one of the largest consulting engineering firms in the United States," Tatu City said in a statement.

Power Engineers Inc's clients include the World Bank, US trade and development agency and Inter-American development bank.

Among locally operating companies that have already committed to take up space at the upcoming complex is coffee company Dormans, tissue maker Kim-Fay, Heineken beverages distributor Maxam and Unilever which is set to build a manufacturing facility within its 420-acre light industrial zone within the proposed industrial city.
