- Contract value of € 72 million
- Dam to secure water supply
Strabag, the publicly listed technology group for construction services, has been commissioned to build the Thiba Dam in Kenya, which will help secure the year-round water supply for the country’s agriculture. “The 40 m tall and 1 km long dam being built about 130 km northeast of the Kenyan capital of Nairobi will create a reservoir that will allow a second harvest every year in the surrounding cultivable area,” explains Thomas Birtel, CEO of Strabag SE.
The contract value translates to the equivalent of approximately € 72 million and also includes the connection to the existing road network as well as facilities for water draw-off and safe floodwater drainage. The construction for the project, being carried out largely through international financing, is scheduled to last around 45 months. The contractual start of construction is expected to take place in early October 2017 latest.
