Construction and Infrastructure solutions for Kenya

Kenya is one of the largest and fastest growing economies in sub-Saharan Africa. Despite the stagnation of economic growth caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, the Kenyan government is continuing to expand the road and rail network and the port facilities. In view of the population growth of over 1 million people annually, there is also an additional need for new residential complexes.


Austrian companies have special opportunities in large infrastructure projects as technology leaders and sub-contractors or in the preparation of feasibility studies. Taking on the construction supervision of major projects and providing engineering services also holds great potential for Austrian specialists. There is also a demand for companies that are able to offer turnkey partial solutions for technically demanding systems.
