Ongoing Projects

Kenya Shipyards Limited is building a 100-meter Wagon ferry in Lake Victoria with the collaboration of Damen Shipyards under the transfer of technology.

The technology is mostly related to the construction of the ship hulls and out-fitting.

We are currently undertaking a mid-Life refit of one of the Kenya Navy ships and maintaining and repairing numerous vessels belonging to MDAs.


We are promoting the development of the Blue Economy within Lake Victoria Basin by dredging the approaches to Kisumu Port, Kenya Petroleum Company jetty, and around the avenues of approach to shipbuilding and repair facilities.

KSL is also upgrading the Kisumu Shipyard to create more shipbuilding and repair areas and conform with today’s ship construction technology.

We are also engaged in remanufacturing and revitalization of Kenya Railways locomotives at central workshops in Nairobi.
