ACE Energy Shop. To meet the demand for clean, efficient fuel among the local population around Naivasha, ACE has partnered with Gulf Energy to distribute Pima Gas cylinders –– compact, portable, partially refillable LPG cooking stoves –– via our flagship ACE Energy Shop in Karagita, Naivasha. The innovative stoves have been extremely well received and we’re expanding into surrounding areas to reduce reliance on charcoal and firewood across the region.
Constructed Wetland. ACE was contracted by the VP Group to design a holistic wastewater treatment wetland for their Liki River Farm (Longonot Division) in Naivasha. The system, comprising both constructed and natural elements, handles approximately 15 m3/day and is nearing completion. Several species of waterfowl and invertebrates have already begun frequenting the pond margins, which have been planted with native wetland species including papyrus.
Ecological Restoration. As part of our ecological restoration activities, ACE recently partnered with Van den Berg Roses, Kenya to protect and enhance the shoreline of Lake Naivasha. Having conducted an EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment), 22 floating islands populated with wetland plants were deployed offshore from the farm. These islands serve to reduce wave action, ameliorate erosion and provide fish breeding and bird nesting sites, whilst improving the aesthetic appeal of the lake edge.
