USA: Feasibility Study of 5 MW Wellhead Geothermal Turbine at Olkaria

USA Company Selected For Geothermal Project in Kenya (EnergyCentral)

Langson Energy, Inc. (LEI), a US energy equipment manufacturer based in Newport Beach, California & Carson City, Nevada, has been selected by Kenya Electricity Generating Limited (KenGen) to conduct a green technology feasibility study for their Olkaria Geothermal Power Plant.

KenGen has been searching for a specialized genset that can be installed upstream as a topping unit capable of accepting high pressure geothermal wellhead pressures to capture the waste energy and generate additional clean electricity.

This study will evaluate the technical, commercial, financial, and environmental viability of utilizing Langson Energy’s 5 MW Total Flow Generator to make more efficient use of the geothermal resource at Olkaria. Upon the successful results of the study, KenGen and LEI will have the opportunity to install a number of additional units in the more than 275 wells which will optimize power plant efficiency and greatly impact the electric footprint in the country.
