Tatu City selects Power Engineers
Tatu City, the mixed-use, mixed-income satellite city near Nairobi, has selected U.S.-based Power Engineers Inc. to consult on the development’s power requirements.
A specialist in the engineering, design and construction management for electrical power transmission and distribution systems, Power Engineers is one of the largest consulting engineering firms in the United States. Power Engineering has delivered projects in dozens of countries for clients such as the World Bank, U.S. Trade and Development Agency and Inter-American Development Bank.
Tatu City’s first residential phase, Kijani Ridge, has received strong interest from the market, with more than 60% of plots sold.
The Tatu Industrial Park recently announced that global consumer giant Unilever will build a manufacturing facility within its 420-acre light industrial zone, following well-known Kenya and East African companies Dormans, Kim-Fay and Maxam that are moving from Nairobi’s congested industrial area to traffic-free Tatu City.
