Malindi Solar Power Plant, Kenya
Located on the coast of Kenya, the 52 MWp Malindi Solar plant is one of the largest utility solar farms in East Africa.
The plant has been generating clean electricity since mid-December 2021 and selling it to national utility Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) under the terms of a long-term power purchase agreement. The project also included the construction of the new 220 kV Weru substation, which is now part of KPLC’s national grid infrastructure.
Nextracker was chosen for the Malindi Solar project because of its world-
leading solar tracker technology and proven track record of on-time delivery, engineering and project management expertise, and comprehensive global services organization.
