Kenya wind farm to use 38 GE wind turbines

A total of 38 General Electric (GE) 1.6 MW wind turbines will power the Kinangop Wind Farm in Kenya, which is being developed by Aeolus Kenya and constructed by Iberdrola Engineering.

Following the wind power project's commissioning, the 61 MW wind farm will generate enough renewable electricity to power the equivalent of 150,000 homes in the country.

GE's collaborations with Iberdrola span nearly 100 years, having developed energy projects together in all countries where Iberdrola has a footprint.

In Kenya, Nairobi Ring, a large-scale grid upgrade for the Kenya Electricity Transmission utility also was announced as another collaboration between the companies. Nairobi Ring is a new electricity distribution system including a high-voltage network, four new substations and the extension of the city’s largest existing substation.

GE also will provide operations and maintenance for the wind farm through a full-service agreement with Kinangop Wind Park Limited for 10 years.
