KenGen is looking for firms that are interested in offering consultancy services to conduct a study on power generation from the Olkaria brine fluids

Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) has issued a call for Expression of Interest (EOI) for consultancy services to conduct a feasibility study on power production from the brine of the Olkaria geothermal field. A similar study had been conducted in 2014 but will need to be updated due to increased brine volumes from additional plants and future plants.

The successful bidder will need to analyze the physical and chemical properties of the brine produced from the Olkaria geothermal field, and come up with a development plan and generation potential for a modern binary power plant. Issues such as long-term management, reinjection strategy, and potential scaling problems will need to be considered and anticipated.

The EOI documents must be submitted to KenGen’s office in Nairobi, Kenya not later than June 26, 2019. For more details on the selection criteria, expected output, and the required documents, you may check out the link below.
