The Menengai Geothermal Project is being developed in four phases each of approximately 100MW. The estimated potential of the Menengai Geothermal Project is 1600MW.
Phase I of the project commenced in February, 2011. GDC has seven (7) deep drilling rigs that are used by a Kenyan crew for drilling geothermal wells.
So far GDC has realized 160MW of steam at the well head. GDC has contracted three (3) IPPs to construct three power plants under Phase 1 of the Menengai. Ground breaking for power plant construction is expected to take place in February 2017 with completion expected within 18 months.
