Kenya: PPA signed for 90MW Mpeketoni wind project
Belgium’s Elicio and local partner Kenwind Holdings signed a 20-year power purchase agreement on 31 January for a 90MW wind project at Mpeketoni, in Lamu County. The Bahari Wind Limited project company will build, own, operate and maintain the $180m project, which will consist of 22 turbines. Construction is expected to start in 2022, once financing has been secured. The project was initially planned to be developed by Electrawinds and IFC InfaVentures, which signed a cooperation agreement in June 2013.
