AMU power signs deal with General Electric for clean coal
American energy firm General Electric has acquired a twenty per cent stake in Amu Power, worth an estimated 40 billion shillings. Amu is the company that will own and operate Kenya’s 1,050 Mega Watt Lamu coal-fired electricity generation plant.This purchase is part of a new Clean Coal Technology agreement between the two firms.
Under the Agreement, GE Power will design, manufacture and deliver its Ultra Super-Critical clean coal technology components, that include a boiler and steam turbine generator, and air quality controls systems for the Lamu Coal Power Plant. Upon completion, the Plant is expected to become the single largest Independent Power Producer (IPP) in the region and will account for up to 30 percent of power generation capacity in Kenya.
