Menengai II Geothermal Power Station Wikipedia
The power station is located in the Menengai Crater, approximately 30 kilometres (19 mi), north of Nakuru, the location of the district headquarters. This is approximately 185 kilometres (115 mi), by road, northwest of Nairobi, the capital and largest city in Kenya. The coordinates of Menengai Crater are:0°11'46.0"S, 36°03'47.0"E (Latitude:-0.196105; Longitude:36.063062).
Geothermal Development Company (GDC), a company wholly owned by the Kenyan government has drilled geothermal wells in the Menengai Crater, whose total capacity can generate up to 130 megawatts (170,000 hp) of electric energy. GDC will sell the steam to three independent power producers (IPPs) to build three geothermal power stations, each with capacity of 35 megawatts (47,000 hp). The power stations are:
- Menengai I Geothermal Power Station - Owned by Orpower Twenty Two
- Menengai II Geothermal Power Station - Owned by Quantum Power East Africa
- Menengai III Geothermal Power Station - Owned by Sosian Energy
Menengai II Geothermal Power Station, whose construction costs were budgeted at KSh4 billion (approx. US$40 million), is owned by Quantum Power East Africa, an independent power producer (IPP). *US$1.00 = KSh100.80 on 4 April 2016
