Kenya Electricity Generating Co. Ltd. (KenGen) seeks bids for civil construction and for power plant equipment for the 21.2-MW Sangoro hydroelectric project in Kenya. Bids are due December 3.
Japan Bank for International Cooperation approved a 5.6 billion yen (US$46.4 million) loan for the project in January. Sangoro is designated the highest priority of Kenya’s power development plan. (HNN 1/25/07)
