Kenya to improve geothermal power generation

Geothermal power generation in Kenya is set to be improved so as to achieve enhanced security and efficiency with the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.

This came into place after The Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) signed a joint declaration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)

KenGen MD and CEO, Rebecca Miano, Deputy Director General of UNIDO, Shigeru Maeda and Senior Vice President of JICA signed the declaration on cooperation in Japan recently.

Olkaria Geothermal Power project
The declaration brings together stakeholders of the upcoming operation and maintenance capacity strengthening with IoT technologies for the Olkaria Geothermal Power project. It creates a platform for dialogue between the industry, manufacturers, policymakers and investors. The aim is to jointly build capacities and promote sharing of expertise with a view to improving efficiency.

Efficiently exploit geothermal resources
Rebecca Miano pointed out that the joint declaration will open opportunities for KenGen to enhance and strengthen capacity with IoT technologies to efficiently exploit geothermal resources with a view to meeting Kenya’s ever-rising power needs.

“We believe this joint partnership will enable Kenya to employ innovative methods to provide clean and affordable electric power for national development,” she said.

Through the partnership, UNIDO will strengthen operation and maintenance capacity with IoT technologies for Olkaria geothermal power in collaboration with JICA.
