Kawuku Shipyard project


It is part of government policy to undertake strategic efforts geared toward increasing the volume of passenger and cargo traffic by maritime traffic and promote water transport as an alternative mode.

This project will provide the benefit of diverting most of the road dependent shipment from Mombasa port via Lake Victoria with the overall effect of reducing the axle loads that are continuously causing damage to our roads. In addition, it will create employment opportunities as well as establish a maritime institute that will directly create skills required in the maritime industry.
