On October 28, the delegation led by CHANDA Osward Mulenga, Manager of Water Development and Sanitation Department, African Development Bank, inspected the construction site of Thwake Dam Project in Kenya in the company of officials of the Ministry of Water, Sanitation and Irrigation and local government.

The Delegation Inspects the Construction Site

The delegation visited the diversion tunnel, spillway area and viewing platform of the Project, and debriefed to reports on construction progress, quality and environmental protection by the owner’s on-site representative and directors.

CHANDA Osward Mulenga encouraged the Project Department to create it a model project. He said, “the sites are very well organised and clean with the workers in people safety gear .The work processes are very impressive and should lead to an excellent piece at the end of the day.”

CHANDA Osward Mulenga stressed that CGGC, as a contractor, overcame great challenges of fund shortage to maintain the normal progress of the Project despite of delayed approval for the Project’s fund loan transfer agreement, which is really exciting and touching. He noted that efforts will be made to request the Kenyan Government signing the loan agreement as soon as possible. He hoped that the owner and local government could leverage full support to the project construction, and that CGGC could keep forging ahead and satisfactorily complete the Project as scheduled to benefit local residents.

With the investment of RMB 2.5 billion funded by the African Development Bank and the Ministry of Finance of Kenya, the Thwake Dam Project is currently the largest monomer infrastructure project in Kenya that is under construction. Measuring 80.5m in height and 1.5km in length, the dam is planned to be completed in 2022. After completion, it will bring huge economic benefits to the water supply, power generation and agricultural irrigation in Kitui, Makuani and Machakos in southeast Kenya.
