Kenya: Gulf Energy consortium wins Lamu coal plant tender
A consortium led by Kenya’s Gulf Energy and Centum Investment Company has won a tender to build a 960MW coal-fired plant at Lamu, the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum announced on 1 September. The consortium also includes China Huadian Corporation Power Operation Company and PowerChina subsidiaries Sichuan Electrical Power Design and Consulting Company and Sichuan No 3 Electrical Power Construction Company. The award was marred by the disqualification of two other Chinese companies after discrepancies were uncovered in the calculation of their bid prices.
