The Chinese firm Chint Kenya officially opened its doors in Nairobi on January 25, joining the country’s energy sector.
The multi-billion company opened its offices to serve the East African region with a focus on transforming the energy sector in the country.
This Chinese-run company focuses on the energy system of supply, storage, transmission, allotment, and consumption.
Before making an entry into the country, the Chinese company had made some donations to tests its products. Since 2017, the company has been making donations to various institutions in the country including schools, and fitting them with smart solar energy systems.
During a recent ceremony, Kenya Power officials also commented on the collaboration with Chinese company Chint Kenya. Kenya Power stated that Chint will be responsible for transmitting solar energy to government institutions and schools.
The aim of the deal is to lower energy costs among those institutions in the country.
“Chint has been a trusted supplier of smart energy solutions, their products have been of the highest quality, reliable and adaptable to the Kenyan market,” Chint Kenya announced during the launch.
The company falls in the broad Zhejiang Chint Electrics corporate family that has over 587 firms distributed in different parts of the world.

Its entry into the Kenyan market comes at a time when Kenya Power is facing a number of troubles including blackout that has been attributed to vandalism of electric pylons.
