The sick electricity situation of Ghana gains somewhat sigh of relief as Government has opened 1000 megawatt Estuary power project power production project.
Estuary power project, in Ada of the Greater Accra Region, will use strong sea waves to produce electricity which usually are supposed to be highly destructive in the coastal areas.
Estuary power project is being executed by TC Energy, a Ghanaian based company, as well as Swedish company, Sea Base, experts in tidal energy, will co-operate to accomplish the project.
Estuary Power Project
In the first phase Estuary power project will outlet 14 megawatts of power at a cost of $100 million by next year, it will periodically add power in total demand, whereas the total time estimated is around six year. The expanses of the project are calculated at $4 billion.
Ghana is undergoing a harsh power crisis which has led to load shedding practice, influencing negatively on businesses and industrial areas.
Officials are very hopeful that the project after becoming functional will help to stabilize the power situation.
The Estuary project wouldn’t only assist energy crisis but also a hope for residents living in Ada shoreline. The destructive waves have drowned thousands of homes in the recent years but the residents are optimistic the project will cut the problem.
Sea wave power technology is deploying first time in Ghana. The Swedish company has previously successfully launched the project in Peru, Sweden also benefiting from tidal energy.
