The Challenges

The Lake Turkana Wind Power Project (LTWP) is the single largest private investment in Kenya’s history. The wind farm covers 40,000 acres (162Km2) and is located in Loiyangalani District, Marsabit County. The Ksh 70 billion wind farm aims to provide 310MW of reliable, low cost wind power to Kenya’s national grid, equivalent to approximately 18 per cent of the country’s current installed electricity generating capacity.

Our company provided geotechnical services for the proposed power-plant site construction, which included:

Soil testing, Geotechnical drilling and testing of 20 holes, and Pitting
