Kenya: Consultancy Opportunity on Generating Electricity from Surplus Geothermal Brine

Expression of Interest (EoI) For Consultancy Services for Update of Feasibility Study on Geothermal Power Generation from Brine in Kengen Olkaria Field (KenGen)

KenGen geothermal plants are single flash with condensing steam turbines. The production wells produce two phase geothermal fluid which is separated into steam and brine.

The separated brine from the interconnected wells is reinjected while still at high temperatures (>160°C). KenGen intends to utilize this considerable amount of heat energy in the separated brine for additional power generation using binary technology and also geothermal resource from un-utilised wells in the Olkaria. KenGen carried out a feasibility study in 2014 to evaluate the possibility of generating power from brine.

The company would like to update the feasibility study taking into account the increased brine quantities from the additional plants, future plants and the un-utilised wells. The update is expected to take about 12 months.

Bidders should submit one (1) Original and two (2) copies of the EoI on or before 1400 hours (East African Time) on 26th June 2019.
