Isolux Corsán has expanded its business activities in Africa, adding a new country to its scope: Kenya. This country has enormous potential for economic development. The company has been awarded a flagship project here, involving the construction of the longest high-voltage transmission line on the continent.
This will span 428 kilometers at a voltage of 400 kV. It is an EPC contract worth €142m, signed with the public-sector company, Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (Ketraco).
Will construct 428 kilometers of high-voltage lines in Kenya, its first incursion in to this region.
The new infrastructure will be able to upload the energy output from the 300-MW wind farm with the highest installed capacity of the entire African continent, which is soon going to be built in the north of the country, near Lake Turkana.
With this project, Isolux Corsán has decisively moved in to one of the fastest growing economies in Africa. It will also allow the company to leverage its involvement in Kenya to expand its activities throughout the region over the next few years.
