Buy Kenyan Build Kenya Commencement of the Last Mile Connectivity Project

 

The Last Mile Connectivity Project is a programme initiated by the Government and will be implemented by Kenya Power. The project aims at increasing electricity access to Kenyans and consequently, stimulate economic growth at the micro-economic level in line with the Government’s Vision 2030.

 

To achieve this, existing distribution of transformers in all counties will be exploited to the maximum through extension of the low-voltage network to reach households located within the reach of these transformers.

The implementation will be through a combination of both the Turnkey and Labour; and Transport packages. Among the materials required for the implementation are:-

Supply of 554,000 (10 metre) wooden/concrete poles

Supply of 60,000 kilometres of 50 mm2 AA conductor

Supply of 1,000 transformers, of 50 KVA and 25 KVA

Supply of 8,000 kilometres of 10 mm2 aluminium concentric single-phase service line cables with a 2 pair imbedded communication cable

Supply of 500,000 single/three-phase energy meters

Implementation contracts -16 contract LOTs distributed in all 47 counties

Supply of various distribution line hardware: insulators, earthing materials, cut-outs, bolts, nuts, etc.

In the spirit of ‘Buy Kenyan Build Kenya’, Kenya Power wishes to encourage local manufacturers and contractors to participate in the tenders that will be advertised in the coming months. ‘Buy Kenyan Build Kenya’ initiative means supplying locally made/assembled materials and not those manufactured from overseas.

Procurement will be in accordance with the procurement guidelines of the financing partners who include World Bank and the African Development Bank.
