Kenya to build power distribution station for Ethio-Kenya power supply
Addis Ababa, December 7 (WIC) - Kenya has floated a bid for building a power distribution station at Sussewa to be used for the transmission of power from Ethiopia.
The distribution station will be used for the onward transmission of power from the Walaita Soddo sub-station in Ethiopia under the deal signed between the two countries in 2011.
Ethiopia is to supply Kenya with 400MWs of power annually. The project is being covered by loans from the World Bank and the African Development Bank.
The World Bank is providing US$684 million while the remaining US$348 million is being provided by the African Development Bank. (MoFA)
