It was reported that KenGen started drilling a geothermal project in Ethiopia for $56 million contract with Tulu Moye geothermal Ethiopia. 

In its twitter feed today, the company announced that it hit steam after drilling 650m. 

 

This positive development comes in the midst of Ethiopia's celebration of filling the first round of the Great Ethiopian Renaisance Dam, GERD, Projetc.  Ethiopia's energy sector has been Critisized for being dominated by hydro power and the energy mix is going to change soon once the geothermal, solar and wind projects become operational.

As one of the first independent power projects in Ethiopia, the Tulu Moye geothermal project plans to develop a geothermal power plant with the capacity to generate 150MW to be developed in 2 phases (Phase 1- 50 MW, Phase 2-100MW) to produce electric power in the Main Ethiopian Rift Valley, Oromia Regional State, Arsi & East Shewa zones, and sell the power to the Ethiopian Electric Power.
