  14. 14. CHALLENGES TO DEVELOPING RAILWAY PROJECTSConsiderations:1. Very large and expensive projects – billions of US$;2. Have long incubation period requiring tenacity;3. Challenges include: – Buy-in by stakeholders – Securing the railway corridors and locations for workshops, depots and passenger stations; – Identifying funding for infrastructure rolling stock provision and operations – Fast tracking procurement process of the various items – Identifying suitable source of energy – Providing railway expertise – Uncoordinated development – Environmental and social issues
  15. 15. FUNDING IDENTIFICATIONPOSSIBLE SOURCE COMMENTSPrivate sector for rolling stock and This is now the trend in railway and otheroperational logistics infrastructure operationsDevelopment partners Buy-in for the project being pursuedPrivate investors Will require GoK guarantees, which could be constrained by level of public debt to GDP ratioGovernment budget Insufficient, constrained by other compelling needsRailway development fund – set Insufficient but could be used toup by GoK and funded from fuel securitise loans by GoKlevy, grants and donations Recommendation: GoK to pursue a G-to-G arrangement with aGovernment tohaving financial and technical capability; G-to-G to be supported government Government (G- Promising, already applied for roadsto-G) arrangement a Railway Development Fund by GoK budget and development
  16. 16. TRACTION• Steam – obsolete• Diesel – initially• Electrification – in the long term• ELECTRIFICATION PREFERRED
  17. 17. OPTIONS FOR ELECTRICITY GENERATION Renewable/s – Solar – Wind – Sea waves – Hydro – Geothermal Fossils – Coal – Petroleum (diesel, heavy diesel and black oil) – Natural gas (methane) UnclearNUCLEAR PREFERRED – SAFE, CLEAN AND PROVEN TECHNOLOGY

  20. 20. CONCLUSIONNone of the challenges is insuperableRailway development in the region is an idea whose time has come; nothing can stop it; friends will support it and assist to develop it; sceptic will be persuaded to join the believers.Electric traction is the better option;For Kenya and the region, nuclear energy could be consideredThere is commercial opportunity in the investing into large nuclear and coal power generation plants
