Project 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.
