The government of Kenya has launched the construction of a green data center at Olkaria, in Nakuru County.

The park will host light industries such as warehousing and logistics and supporting industries, medium and heavy industries such as manufacturers of fertilisers, iron and steel, plastics and packaging, and fabricated metal products.

It will also host steam-intensive industries such as pulp and paper, wood and wood products, textiles and apparel, food and beverages, and leather industries.

”Today’s groundbreaking is important to our country. We are fully transitioning to eco-friendly green data,” Prime CS Musalia Mudavadi said during the groundbreaking ceremony in Ol Karia.

”The project intertwines technology and sustainability, propelling Kenya into the forefront of the digital era. With the power of renewable energy, we’re not just building a data centre – we’re shaping a greener, smarter future,” he added.

Kenya’s top power producer KenGen has opened up hundreds of acres of land for lease in Naivasha to lure international investors with cheap power tariffs to put up an industrial park within the geothermal steam fields.

Sub-developers and manufacturing plus processing companies are encouraged to contact KenGen with their interest in leasing space in the KenGen Green Energy Park.

Geothermal steam, brine (hot water), raw water, and electricity are all readily available on the site, offering a low-cost starting point for long-term operations.
