Mr. William Amuna, The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo), says the company has finished work on the transmission lines which have since been hooked to the Smelter Station, waiting to extra hook the lines to the framework on the power ship.
This would pave way for the test run to be conducted on the Karpowership for power production which in the following days will begin the production of some 225 megawatts of electricity.
Mr. Amuna said this at an inspection tour of the vessel at the Tema Fishing Harbor, where the vessel docked.
A second facility with the same megawatts capacity is predictable to be delivered soon to Ghana, in consonance with a power purchase agreement (PPA) Karpower Ghana signed with the Electricity Company of Ghana.
Per the agreements, the two powerships would produce some 450 megawatts for a period of 10 years.
Mr. Orhan Remzi Karadeniz, The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Karpower Ghana, addressing the media specified the project is one of the quickest power barges produced at a very lower cost by the company.
He said Karpower had invested a total of US$30million on mobilisation, site preparation; marine infrastructure works along with fuel supply, grid interconnection and storage management.
