KenGen taps Toshiba for Olkaria geothermal power plant uprating

Toshiba Energy Systems and Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS) has been awarded the contract to supply steam turbines and generators for the geothermal power plant renovation of Units 1 through 3 at the old 45-MW Olkaria I geothermal power plant of KenGen in Kenya. The rehabilitation aims to increase the output of Olkaria I from 45 MW to 63 MW.The order was received from SEPCOIIII Electric Power Construction Co. Ltd., the chosen EPC contractor for the project. Both contracts were awarded through a tender process.Plans for the uprating of Olkaria I were first announced in 2022 as part of a wider rehabilitation plan of KenGen’s existing geothermal power plants to increase their capacities. The 45-MW Olkaria I holds the distinct position of being the oldest geothermal power plant in Kenya and has been operating since 1981. In mid-2023, Olkaria I was officially shut down to give way to the two-year rehabilitation plan.The steam turbines and generators will be shipped from Toshiba to the site by December 2025. The modernization project is scheduled for completion by 2026.
