Kenyan KETRACO to build 132 kV Narok-Bomet transmission line

State-owned Kenya Electricity Transmission Company Limited (KETRACO) is set to build the 81-km-long, 132 kV Narok-Bomet transmission line connecting parts of South Rift and South Nyanza to the Olkaria geothermal fields, which produce reliable and cheaper power.

This KES2.1 billion project is being financially supported by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Korea Exim Bank. The planned project would build a line linking the Olkaria geothermal facility to the South Rift and western area transmission network for more dependable power supply with enhanced voltage profiles. The line is expected to reduce power blackouts being experienced in the areas, and increase the quality and dependability of the country’s power supply.
