A.    Siemens (K) Ltd

Siemens Kenya has been our main client in energy sector. In our partnership with Siemens, we have done large projects involving Underground electric power and Optic fibre control cable infrastructure services including all associated civil works.

Main Projects

  1. Laying of 11kV and 33kV, 3C x 300mm2 power and optic fibre cables within Nairobi’s central business district and Museum Hill area.
  2. Construction of 8 km double circuit 220kV (6 X 8000m, 2500mm²) running along the south eastern border of Nairobi National Park to Embakasi KPLC substation. It includes laying of 48 core Optic Fibre Cable on both the circuits. It falls under Lot 3 of the KETRACTO project titled Mombasa-Nairobi 400kV Transmission Line (Tender No. KETRACO/1/6/09 Lot 3). It integrates a two-channel fibre optic cable linking KETRACO head office to the Submarine OFC cable at the coast.  The consultant of the project is PB Power.

The purpose of the project is to transfer power from the coastal region to up-country and is expected to have a capacity of 1500MW of power. When completed, it will enable the location of thermal generators at the coast thereby cutting transportation costs incurred by in-land based diesel power producers like Aggreko. It will also help to improve power system stability and reliability.

The brief scope of the work includes but not limited to seeking permissions and authorizations from relevant authorities; trench excavation; design and construction of jointing bays, bonding Link boxes, FO cable underground termination pits; storage and transportation of cable drums; cable laying and trench backfilling with selected material which meets thermal resistivity requirements.
