The Geothermal Development Company Managing Director & CEO, Eng. Johnson P. Ole Nchoe has lauded the ongoing development works at the Baringo-Silali Geothermal Project.

“I’m very happy about the infrastructural works that are ongoing at the project. Baringo-Silali will be one of the major projects in the country when operations start,” he said during a field tour last week.

Currently the contractor on the site has completed the installation of four water tanks with a capacity of 4.4 million litres each and over 90% of the waterline has been done. More than 100KM of road has been done at the expansive project making mobility easier for both the local community and GDC project works.

“I like the speed and urgency by the team on the ground are operating at. A lot of work has been done. At this rate we are ready to begin operations here because water, which is the major component, has been done,” enthused Eng. Ole Nchoe. He also commended the North Rift team led by the Regional Manager Mr. John Lagat for coordination and engaging the local communities in the ongoing activities.

The MD was accompanied by the GDC Management team. The team visited the Chesiran water intake as well as the Paka and Korosi prospect sites. Already several well pads have been constructed at Silali, Paka and Korosi. The contractor gave assurance that drilling may commence by the end of the month.
