The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) has expressed satisfaction with the progress made at the Menengai Geothermal Project.
GDC MD & CEO Eng. Johnson P. Ole Nchoe on Monday paid a courtesy call to Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mr. Mongo Chimwaga at his Nakuru office.
The Geothermal Development Company (GDC) posted Sh 2.1 billion profit before tax for the Financial Year 2017/18. This is a sharp increase from Sh 896 million posted the previous year.
GDC is giving a new breath of life to thousands of North Rift region communities through provision of clean water and development of infrastructure. GDC has constructed over 100km of roads in Korosi, Paka and Silali.
GDC carried out annual sensitization workshops on procurement targeted at special groups including youth, women and persons living with disabilities (PWDs).
The ongoing drilling in the Baringo-Silali geothermal block is progressing well after GDC set up a rig at the Paka geothermal prospect last month.
