Kenya seeks tendering help for 120-MW Magwagwa, 50-MW Nandi Forest hydro projects


The government of Kenya invites expressions of interest from consultants to assist in studies and tendering for public-private development of the 120-MW Magwagwa and 50-MW Nandi Forest multi-purpose hydroelectric projects in Kenya. Responses are due December 11.

Kenya received World Bank funding for the Infrastructure Finance and Public Private Partnerships Project that is to generate a pipeline of bankable public-private projects, including multi-purpose water projects such as Magwagwa and Nandi Forest.

Kenya water agencies recruited consultants in 2013 to review, design and supervise construction of the Thwake multi-purpose water resources project and works related to Thika Dam. Firms also were recruited for hydropower feasibility studies for the Chania River Outfall. Kenya's Ministry of Water and Irrigation also recruited consultants for a dam safety panel for development of at least six dams including at least one potential hydroelectric project.

In the current solicitation, Kenya's National Treasury, through its Project Implementation Unit, seeks expressions of interest for transaction advisory services for a public-private partnership tender for development of Magwagwa and Nandi Forest. The work is to include review of feasibility studies, due diligence and transaction plans for the projects; development of transaction documents and support during the bidding process; and assistance until financial close.

Expressions of interest are due in person, by mail or by e-mail by 4 p.m. December 11 to the address below. For information, contact Procurement Specialist, Project Implementation Unit, 7th Floor, Anniversary Towers, North Tower, Building No. 19 Monrovia Street/University Way, P.O. Box 30007-00100, Nairobi, Kenya; (254) 202210271; E-mail:,,
