Mwale Medical and Technology City | Kakamega | $2 Billion | U/C

$2 Billion Dollar Medical/Technology city U/C

BioPowerCorp



Quote:
Green3Power International and Togo Technologies are well into process of developing a 144 MW, 4,800 tonnes/day (Tpd) Gasification Facility in Kakamega, Kenya. The Gasification Facility will receive approximately 4,800 Tpd of municipal solid waste, hazardous medical waste, industrial waste as well as approximately 10 tonnes/day of used tires, and generate a nameplate capacity of more than 144 MW, with available power of 120 MW, and a minimum average of 108 MW to the Grid 24 hrs/day, 365 days/yr. The Gasification Facility includes a Sorting Facility to remove recyclables and heavy metals, an in-line jacketed Waste Dryer, a Gasifier, a Cyclone to remove particulate matter from the synthesis gas, a Slagging Unit, a high efficiency, a high temperature and high pressure HRSG Boiler, a four-stage Steam Turbine/Generator, and a highly effective flue gas treatment system.

When in full operation, the new ~ $600 million power plant will deliver an average of 120 MW of electrical energy to the Grid, while earning revenues of more than $260 million annually. The power plant will feature an effective flue gas clean up train to ensure that regulated emissions are far below the concentrations allowed under both Kenyan and U.S. Federal air quality standards. The fluidized bed gasifiers to be used at the new facility are of the type shown above and have been in waste to energy service for more than 33 years.

The waste is sorted to remove recyclables such as metal and glass to be sold to recycling companies, as well as unacceptable waste such as e-waste, dirt, and rocks. Acceptable materials are fed through a shredder to reduce the particle size prior to entering the dryers which reduce the water content.

The project includes the collection of waste. A total of 267 compaction trucks and 10 crane trucks will operate 7 days per week to collect and transport waste to the sorting facility. The project includes the purchase of 8,638 1.1 liter bins, 1,728 3.0 cu m bins, and 1,152 5.0 cu m bins. The trucks and supervision vehicles will be fitted with GPS and communication systems to track the progress of the collection vehicles at all times during the collection and transport process. In addition, 300 mobile street sweepers will be employed to sweep and clean the streets in Kakamega and the surrounding areas. When in full operation the power plant will directly employ approximately 2,350 people and indirectly create another 4,000 jobs. It also plays a crucial role in the USD $2 billion Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC) as the main source of power and proper waste disposal.

MMTC is the largest single private development in Kenya and includes the 144 MW Gasification Power Plant, a 5,000 bed hospital with 8,000 staff treating 12,000 patients per day, two world class shopping malls, a 1,500 room 5-star golf resort, an airstrip, and over 4,000 new homes.


As of July 2016, over 90,000 square feet of upscale residential homes and apartments have been constructed, furnished and occupied. Hamptons Mall, a multi-billion shilling residential and shopping complex and the first of the 2 shopping malls at MMTC, (see photo below or read more at www.hamptonsmall.com) is complete and fully occupied. A strong international community has made Hamptons Mall its home, including the UK based Barclays Bank, the American restaurant Hamptons Café, known for upscale service, and Mwal-mart, a supermarket stocked full with thousands of American brand-name products. Additionally, the foundations of the 1,500 room 5-star golf resort and 5,000 bed hospital are fully underway; with the construction sites operating into the night with the aid of over 600 hundred solar and grid based lights transforming night into day.


The Green3Power Gasification facility is an important component of the overall MMTC facility and community, providing much needed waste service, and power.

Mwale Medical and Technology City

Quote:
Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC) is a sustainable metropolis with a large medical and technology complex, located in Butere Sub-county, Kakamega, Kenya. It contains a multi-billion-shilling shopping and residential complex and a 5,000-bed medical referral hospital. The complex is build with renewable sources of energy with hundreds of solar powered street lights, a 144-megawatt waste energy facility to produce electricity for the city from municipal waste.

A 36-hole golf resort and residences contains 1,500 rooms, 4,800 residences along the golf course. Other amenities include a planned water park, a convention center and a second large mall build at the airport. A cable car system connects the airport to the homes and the hospital. A technology park and a medical school are planned for the complex. The city is build on 5,000 acres area at the value of US$ 2 billion.

BackGround

A feasibility study carried out from 2007 to 2012 established the site of a proposed medical tourism and technology city in western Kenya. The lead investor Julius Mwale a Kenyan technology entrepreneur and investor based in the US assembled a team of technology and healthcare experts and companies from the US and enlisted them for phase one of the city which commenced in 2014 and was completed in 2016. Phase 1 encompassed a multi-billion shopping and residential complex with Hamptons Mall as the anchor . The mall hosts Mwalmart supermarket, Hamptons Cafe bed and breakfast, showroom and more than 90,000 square feet of private residences.

Phase two commenced in June 2016 and ran to September 2017. This included the first section of 5,000 bed referral hospital, over 70 kilometers of roads, and more than 300 solar street lights. Phase 2 also included the first phase of 4,800 homes expected to host doctors and nurses.

The final phase, from September 2017 to December 2020, includes the 36-hole golf resort and residences, an airport with the second shopping mall, a convention center and a water park connected to the hospital by a cable car. It will also have medical school, a technology park and a 144-megawatt gassification power plant.


From what I read that is the plan but I only saw the mall Pictures

The vision i can see it long term with Kenyans and Ugandans coming to live in Butere with all the modern amenities.

But so far it looks like they've just built two houses and a small supermarket. I wish someone from the area could give us some insight like if they're selling land to people like Thika Greens...

He should ditch the golf course idea and focus on an industrial park(Which will be powered by the powerplant) it will bring in more money than a golf course and it will employ the local to work in the factory. He can then build a nice recreational lake with mini golf, the hotel...

Is the project worth 2 Billion dollars or is the land valued at two billion dollars? I don't wanna be pessimistic but based on what I've seen, it sure doesn't look like 2bn worth of construction.

Look for the man. He should pay you a tidy sum for this suggestion.

I'm going to have to agree with you. We don't have a masterplan, or even renders.

My ideas are free.

Lol I thought he said 500 bed. 5,000 bed hospital sounds absurd or unless he means that it will be more than a hospital but a medical research hub that will treat thousands of Kenyans and people across Africa. It will probably have advanced research labs, for cancer, HIV, Malaria, Sickle cell, Ebola etc. Then it would make sense.

And this is what Julius Mwale, the President and Head of Strategy of US-based SBA Technologies Inc has dedicated his time doing for the better part of the last decade. Mwale, a former Kenya Air Force soldier who fled the country in 2000 and sought asylum in the US after differing with the top brass in the Government, has developed a technology to secure mobile and internet banking, e-commerce and e-government. "We are looking at huge transactions that could raise fears of integrity in the future and this is why we have developed a technology that can secure them," said Mwale whose new home in the US was a shack in New York for about a year until his asylum application was approved. With word on his innovation getting into US technology circles, he was soon enrolled as a special admit at Columbia University for masters in Electrical engineering in 2003. Secure transaction At Columbia his technology attracted faculty approval from world’s top technology researcher. This made it easier for him to raise the initial $2 million required to roll-out the technology. The technology, dubbed Data Aggregation Timer Enabled Console, is integrated seamlessly with a client’s system and ensures that all transactions carried out are secure. The technology, which has patents-pending in various countries, comes in three generations for online banking security or X, government agencies and private institutions or Y, and for mobile-based transactions and banking or Z.

History behind the guy running the project... I also found a court document where he took a loan and never repaid it. Guess what his SBA technologies is just him listed by himself so it's a briefcase company.

And the nail on the coffin looks like our guy here is a con and a criminal. It affirms my suspicions that this project is shady as hell. I don't know who he tricked into giving him cash to build these project but this a pipe dream. I suspect Mr. Mwale has convinced the Governor of Kakamega Mr.Oparanya into sinking county funds and embezzle the people of Kakamega County that why the governor has been avoiding the PAIC like crazy.


Google maps of the location where are those so called 70 Kilometers of road he says he's built . It looks like the county government built those roads.

Lots of other projects are named after people.

There's Steyn City named after the owner. Can be seen here.

There's also KAEC.

With a name like Mwal-mart, you don't need to look very far to know what is going on here.

Quoting the ad..

"Don't miss to be part of kenya's green city..... limited investment opportunities are ending soon."

The funniest part from the video is that doctors are ready to occupy....
1. from where?,
2. to do what and there is no hosi?

then, the capacity of the hosi/proposed... is the size of 3 KNHs ... can only laugh.. if it was a school institution or Cyttone or Centum doing this i would believe..

From today's ad, they say it will host 10k engineers, 2000 doctors & 4000 nurses.. He's even asking people to send CVs to the emails in the Ad.. I can only laugh at these numbers...

I will not be surprised if there is nothing like that existing in western Kenya.. how do u build a "mall" in the middle of no where and hospital and there is no SEA/EIA report??????

Kenyans are creatives when it comes to some games... The dust has not even settled after Simple homes that looked so real compared to this..

Not hating... But I don't need a log table to know that this is a mega con game... this is kenya

Mwale Medical and Technology City | Kakamega | $2 Billion | U/C

I smelt a rat long time ago about this project, I've been mute for that reason. Mostly you'll find countries that naturally are not aligned to or find difficulty in practicing democracy having "Democratic" so and so republic in their names. If they can't practice it's meaning they call themselves that and that. It's a mockery. Those who are good at something don't shout about it, they are humble about it.

They lack originality, Hamptons Mall and Mwal-Mart? They are incredulous. Those are both small variations already American company names.
