Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.


Industrial Promotion Services Power Investment Limited (IPS), Cinergy Global Tsavo, CDC Financial Services Limited and Tsavo Power International Limited Liability Company c/o Wartsila of Cayman Islands (the "Guarantee Holders" or "GH") are seeking to acquire MIGA coverage for the existing Tsavo (Kipevu II) Power Plant, an operating Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) fired power generation plant with a capacity of 74.5 megawatts (MW), located along Kipevu Road, Mombasa County, Kenya (the "Project" or "power plant"). The power plant is currently in its 18th year of operation. Construction of the power plant commenced in September 2000 and the commercial operation date was reached on September 4th, 2001. The power plant is comprised of: seven diesel generators; two HFO tanks; one water tank; two transformers; an engine room and various auxiliary and supporting components. The Project has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) signed in January 2000, with the Kenya Power and Lighting Company Limited (Kenya Power), the national electric utility company. A Kenya Power sub-station is located adjacent to the plant.

The Project is located on 3.2 hectares (ha) of land, within an industrial zone overlooking the Mombasa Port Area and is adjacent to Kipevu I (63 MW) and Kipevu III (120 MW) power stations, as well as railway lines and port facilities. The three power plants are located within the same fenced area, with shared security. The nearest residential area, Changamwe, also includes commercial and industrial activities, and is approximately half a kilometer from the Project.

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
