The minister was mainly impressed by the direct-uses of geothermal energy which was viewed as a panacea to sustainable agri-business in the country. GDC was later among the companies which received trophies from the CS on Friday. Nakuru County is the epitome of Kenya’s geothermal success story as it is the home to Menengai Geothermal Project where GDC is currently drilling. On Tuesday last week, GDC stamped its authority in the industry by scooping top prize by being “The Best Energy Service and Conservation Sector Stand.” GDC has previously won numerous awards in other shows ranging from Kisumu, Nairobi, Kabarnet and Mombasa
Welcome to the Africa Geothermal Centre of Excellence
GDC has setup the African Geothermal Centre of Excellence (AGCE). The Institute offers courses on all facets of geothermal technology including but not limited to drilling engineering, Geosciences (including Geology, Geochemistry, and geophysics), reservoir engineering, environmental management, HSE, steam-field management, project management and power plant engineering. The activities are aimed at building capacity for geothermal development in Africa. GDC already has a pool of experienced human resource in all areas of geothermal development and utilization. The Institute collaborates with the regional industry players and universities.
