Construction of Lamu Coal Fired Power Plant Slated for December


Construction work at the Amu Power Limited coal power plant in Manda Bay, Lamu, will start in early December 2015.

The company expects to fulfill all regulatory requirements by November 30, when it expects to get a go-ahead from the National Environmental Management Authority (Nema) to commence the project.

Currently, the company is working with the county government and the National Land Commission (NLC) to come up with a resettlement plan for the people in the project area and that has delayed submission of the environment impact assessment report to Nema.
