VRA Recieves 250 MW Plant To Increase Power Supply In Ghana

A 250-megawatt (MW) plant from the Africa and Middle East Resource Investment (AMERI) in Dubai has been officially received by the Volta River Authority as part of measures to boost Ghana's ailing power mix.

The reception of the plant follows the expected Karpower ship from Turkey currently set sail to the shores of Ghana with an estimated 225MW of energy next month.

The AMERI plant, made up of 10 power units, is expected to be installed and hooked to gas from the Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) as its fuel as all 10 power units, each with a capacity of 25MW, will be moved to the Aboadze Thermal Power Enclave.

Officials from the VRA reveal the addition from AMERI power would make a positive contribution to the national grid as it is expected to go beyond the 5,000MW as energy experts explain the commercial agreement between the Ministry of Power and AMERI had been signed and executive approval for the project had also been obtained.
