KETRACO’s Power Redirection Averting City Blackouts

1 min read

In a strategic move to enhance power reliability and prevent blackouts, Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (KETRACO) has successfully redirected 80 Megawatts of power from Nairobi North substation to Kimuka station. This initiative, part of the country’s Vision 2030 flagship projects, aims to strengthen the energy sector and improve system efficiency.

KETRACO Managing Director, John Mativo, highlighted the significance of this project, stating, “This project supports the Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda by increasing access to affordable power and improving system efficiency and reliability for existing and proposed industrial and domestic loads.”

The project, financed by Agence française de développement (AFD), European Investment Bank (EIB), and the government of Kenya, is a testament to the commitment of President Ruto’s administration towards sustainable energy solutions and economic growth.

Once completed, the Nairobi Ring and associated substations project will not only provide a reliable power supply for various regions but also ensure stable interconnections with neighboring countries, bolstering regional energy security and cooperation.
