Chinese Firm Opens Kenya's First Transformer Manufacturing Plant

Kenya, Nairobi: Kenya's first transformer manufacturing plant, established by the Chinese company Yocean Group, has been officially opened this week.

A launch ceremony was held in the compound of the plant located on the outskirts of the capital Nairobi, reports Global Times.

"The opening of the first factory for manufacturing transformers in the Kenyan market is a milestone. It will end importation of electrical equipment that in some way slowed down power connection in the country," Kenya's Cabinet Secretary for Energy and Petroleum, Charles Keter, said at the opening.

Kenya's power utility has already awarded a three-year contract to Yocean Group to distribute transformers in the country.

Dylan Yu, CEO of Yocean Group, said his company has the capacity to manufacture made-in-Kenya transformers according to international standards.
