This signing of MOU between Kenya Power and Toshiba Transmission and Distribution Systems India indicates an increased push from Toshiba Transmission and Distribution div. (TDS) Japan to increase their business and presence in Africa. With some key markets like South Africa and Algeria showing a decline in growth rates, this MoU will allow Toshiba to increase their market share in the region using unique products like Solid Insulated switchgear and Gas Insulated transformers to compete against their Chinese competitors, who are also aggressively trying to increase their business in the continent.
