Heavy Engineering Ltd was formed in 1979 by our current Managing Director, Mr Nayan Patel.


In the early 1980’s we entered the hydropower sector in Kenya, initially by supplying skilled manpower for the erection of plant equipment for the main contractors. Our first major hydropower project was Kiambere Hydroelectric Power Project in 1985, where we were the subcontractors responsible for installation of Turbines, Generators, and Hydromechanical Equipment. This project also marked our first experience in manufacturing of Turbine parts for hydropower projects; we manufactured 2 sets each of Draft Tube Liner, Spiral Casing and Pit Liners.


Our experience in hydropower projects has given us confidence to diversify to other fields of power generation and it is our intention to actively participate in future hydro, geothermal, wind and diesel power generation projects. Full details can be found in “Products and Services”.


Heavy Engineering Ltd, located in Nairobi Kenya, is an established engineering company with vast experience in the energy sector in East and Central Africa since 1980.


From cement factories, to power plant generators – Heavy Engineering Limited projects tell the stories we are quite proud of. Our diverse portfolio represents decades of construction experience backed by a passion for quality, outstanding client service and the latest industry technologies.
