Mombasa North power infrastructure upgraded

4th June, 2014

Electricity supply infrastructure in Nyali, Kisauni, Kongowea, Bamburi, Mtopanga and surrounding areas in Mombasa North got a shot in the arm today when hundreds of Kenya Power workers descended on the network to upgrade power lines, transformers and substations to reduce the occurrence of blackouts and also improve quality of supply.


Over 500 technical staff drawn from various parts of the company supported by 134 vehicles are participating in the day long exercise dubbed 'Operation Imarisha Umeme Pwani' that will entail comprehensive maintenance of power equipment, introduction of 377 concrete poles on power lines among others that will cost the Company Shs.125 million.

Kenya Power Managing Director, Dr Ben Chumo, is spearheading a campaign to enhance power supply to Mombasa and the Coast region to support the economic mainstay of tourism and the budding manufacturing sector, as well as the thriving commercial and entertainment activities.
