Kenya’s Civicon wins $38.2 Million Lake Turkana Deal, Daily Says

Lake Turkana Wind Power Ltd. awarded Civicon Ltd. of Kenya a contract to rehabilitate 313 kilometers (196 miles) of roads to and within its wind farm, Business Daily said.

Work on the 3.2 billion-shilling ($38.2 million) program is expected to take 15 months and will improve access to Lake Turkana’s 300-megawatt wind power project, the largest in Africa, the Nairobi-based newspaper said, citing Civicon Project Manager John Latham.

Civicon, a civil and mechanical engineering company with operations in five East African nations, is a unit of TransCentury Ltd. (TCL), a Kenyan investor in infrastructure projects.
