Multi-Link Group is proposing to design, construct and commission a 40MW grid connected solar power project in Turkwel, Turkana County.
While Kenya aspires to be a middle income economy as envisaged in Vision 2030, it faces an enormous task of meeting energy needs due to the high expectations in growth to power the economy and rising demand for electricity. The country therefore needs to come up with strategies and investment plans to secure sustainable supply of electricity. Multi-Link seeks to make a positive contribution towards this end by designing and implementing the proposed solar project.
40 MW of solar power connected to the grid
400 000 PV panels (100w thin films -1.4m x1.1m)
350 acres of non-arable land
Over 300 permanent green semi-skilled jobs and 50 permanent skilled jobs.
