Daily Nation (Kenya) - - BUSINESS - —Con­stant Munda

Cen­tum In­vest­ment and its part­ners plan to re­sume the ex­plo­ration for geo­ther­mal steam in Naivasha by March after pre­vi­ous two wells yielded less re­source than what is re­quired to sus­tain elec­tric­ity gen­er­a­tion. Aki­ira Geo­ther­mal Ltd, a con­sor­tium where Cen­tum con­trols a 37.5 per­cent stake, banks on the planned drilling to build a 70-megawatt power plant, whose cost is pro­jected at €310 mil­lion (Sh36.04 bil­lion).
