Power Minister Confirms Power Barge Is Still In Turkey Waiting For Clearance

Minister of Power, Kwabena Donkor has finally confirmed that the 225-megawatt power barge expected to have set sail from Turkey for Ghana is still stuck in Turkey undergoing custom clearance procedures.

Making the confirmation to a cross-section of the media, the Power Minister revealed the barge which was initially expected to arrive in Ghana in the next three weeks is far from being achieved.

The Minister’s confirmation follows recent media reports that Ghanaian authorities were as on Monday, November 2, 2015, seeking partnership for the provision of fuel to prevent the barge for the journey to Ghana but the statements by the Power Minister seem to contradict that of the Head of Puublic Affairs of the Ministry, Kweku Sersah-Johnson who early on had stressed,

The first emergency power barge from Turkey expected to add some 225 megawatts of power to the national electricity grid has set sail for Ghana and thus is expected to set sail before the month ends.
