Kenya Advances With Mombasa Special Economic Zone


Kenya Electricity Transmission Company Limited (Ketraco) is inviting bids for the design, construction and completion of transmission lines and substations for the Mombasa Special Economic Zone (SEZ) at Dongo Kundu, near the Port of Mombasa in southern Kenya.
The contract, which has a bid deadline of 9 April, is part of the infrastructure development for the SEZ.
The work involves the construction of a 51km three-phase transmission line running between Mariankani and Dongo Kundu, a new 220/33kV substation at Dongo Kundu, a 33KV underground cable line and an extension to the 400/220kV Mariakani substation. 
The Dongo Kundu SEZ is spread across 3,000 acres and is being developed with the support of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The project has been divided into three main components:
Dongo Kundu SEZ development supported by a JICA grant of US$350 million;
SEZ infrastructure development supported by a JICA grant of US$57 million;
Mombasa port area road development supported by a JICA grant of US$117 million.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the SEZ development and the road project was held in October 2019. 
The first component involves constructing a multi-functional port logistics-based SEZ including a free port, free trade zone, industrial park, conference/exhibition area and residential units.

The third component comprises the construction of the Mombasa port area road, which will connect the Dongo Kundu SEZ to Moi International airport and the Miritini railway terminus.
The road project includes the Dongo Kundu bypass, which starts at the Mwache Interchange and ends at the SEZ at Mwangala on the south mainland. 
The bypass included three bridges: Mwache Bridge, Tsunza Viaduct and Mteza Bridge. The Mwache Bridge, which spans 660m, is 99% complete, according to a 10 January update from the government.
The 690m Tsunza Viaduct is 99.3% complete, while the 1.44km Mteza Bridge is 95% complete.

In February 2023, Kenya’s Special Economic Zones Authority (SEZA) issued a request for expressions of interest to local and international firms to invest in the Dongo Kundu SEZ. The tender notice said opportunities were available in the following sectors:
Cotton, textiles and apparel; 
Automotive manufacturing and assembly; 
Blue economy; 
Water desalination and service provision; 
Green energy and renewables; 
Heavy metals and steel;
Oil and gas;
Transport and logistics;
Warehousing, cargo bulk-breaking and consolidation;
Business support.
In an April 2023 inspection visit to the SEZ, trade secretary Moses Kuria said two investors – Taifa Gas Company and East African Tea Traders Association – had broken ground on their sites in the SEZ.
