Kenya Ports Authority
Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) is a state corporation with the responsibility to "maintain, operate, improve and regulate all scheduled seaports" on the Indian Ocean coastline of Kenya, including principally Kilindini Harbour at Mombasa. Other KPA ports include Lamu, Malindi, Kilifi, Mtwapa, Kiunga, Shimoni, Funzi and Vanga. The KPA was established in 1978 through an act of Parliament and is located in Mombasa.
In 1989, the government of Kenya brought together the operation and regulation of existing ferry services, including the Likoni Ferry service at Likoni, Mombasa, into one subsidiary of the KPA, Kenya Ferry Services. The subsidiary was devolved to the status of an independent Kenya state corporation in 1998.
In August 2014, Kenya Ports Authority signed a deal worth $478m with China Communication Construction Company (CCCC) for the construction of three Lamu Port berths. The three new berths will form part of the $24bn Lamu Port South Sudan Ethiopia Transport (Lapsset) corridor and take its berth count to 29 upon completion.
