Franklin + Andrews appointed as commercial managers on Magadi New Ash project, Kenya

Franklin + Andrews has been appointed by Brunner Mond [the parent company of Magadi Soda Company of Kenya] to provide commercial management services for the Magadi New Ash Project being constructed at Lake Magadi, which is located in the Rift Valley 120km south of Nairobi, Kenya.

The project team comprising representatives of the parent company, Brunner Mond, the Magadi Soda Company, project managers - Bosch Projects and commercial managers - Franklin + Andrews have completed the pre-contract phase which includes preparing documentation, evaluating the competitively tendered work and completing negotiations with the selected contractor.

The main EPC turnkey contract has been awarded to Larsen & Toubro from India, in association with Akzo Nobel Engineering of the Netherlands and Jacob Engineering’s Mumbai office.

Funding arrangements have been finalised and engineering design work is nearing completion. Mobilisation is now underway with the initial shipments of materials and major process plant items will follow in the New Year.

The project team is also responsible for the delivery of the various ‘off-plot’ projects in support of the new plant, comprising power generation, new dredging capacity, upgraded rail transport system and enhanced warehousing and bulk handling facilities at Mombasa port.


Editor’s Notes:
Soda ash has been recovered from Lake Magadi since the early 1900’s. The raw trona is dredged from the lake, impurities removed to leave the crushed refined soda, which is then calcined and screened to produce the soda ash. The principal markets for soda ash are in the glass making and detergent industries.
