Our Role in the LTWP Project

Soil Solutions conducted a site assessment and then developed a long term cost effective sustainable solution that will protect the initial capital infrastructure investment and allow for a much improved road network, while reducing required future maintenance.  This includes the integration of Engineered Base Stabilizer  (EBS) to stabilize and surface seal the road sections.

President Kenyatta Commissioned the Laisamis-Sarima Road Upgrades on July 19, 2019, together with the LTWP project and the transmission line.

Dust protection for the turbines by prevention of fugitive and wind blown dust generated by heavy equipment operation. Incorporating the use of Soil Solutions products and services into the construction and operation of your wind turbine farm will ensure:
