Daher to transport equipment for Kenya’s Lake Turkana Windfarm

Sept 24, 2016: Industrial conglomerate Daher will transport electrical substation equipment to the Lake Turkana Wind Power project in Kenya.

The equipment will be delivered from Europe, Turkey, Tunisia, India and China to the Loiyangalani site near Lake Turkana, about 1,000 kilometres from Mombasa. Once complete the Lake Turkana Windfarm will be largest of its kind in Africa.

The cargo will include 10 transformers each weighing 55 tonnes and will involve transportation of equipment from locations worldwide.
