Rapidly increasing urbanisation in Africa means two things: more waste and greater demand for electricity.

Just before Christmas, it was reported that KenGen has started the mobilisation of its drilling rig for the Tulu Moye geothermal project in Ethiopia. We reported earlier this year, that a contract for drilling services was signed by Tulu Moye Geothermal and KenGen. Under the $56 million contract, KenGen will drill 12 geothermal wells, installing water supply system and equipment. Around 48 truck loads will be sent to the project site by KenGen.
The company is taking great pride in taking its geothermal experiences and services outside of Kenya. “Our projects in Ethiopia come at a time when KenGen’s diversification strategy has taken off in earnest. For more than 40 years now, KenGen has drilled more than 300 geothermal wells & invested in experts with considerable experience in geothermal development.”, so Rebecca Miano, Managing Director of KenGen.
