Karpowership Ghana Company Ltd says the imminent relocation from Tema to Sekondi in the Western region will not affect power supply.
Karpowership is planning to relocate their 470 megawatts powership from Tema to Sekondi.
Karpowership has been supplying power to the national grid since it began operations in 2015.
Ms Sandra Amarquaye who is the Communication Specialist for Karpowership Ghana says the relocation will help the company utilize Ghana’s natural gas in the western enclave.
“Together with our stakeholders, we are almost through with site preparation works and we are looking forward to relocating the powership by the middle of August,” she said at a handing over ceremony.
Karpowership handed over a newly refurbished Tema community library to Ghana Library Authority and she assured the company will continue to supply consistent and reliable electricity.
“Operating from the western enclave next month will not affect consistent and reliable electricity supply we are known for.”
Chief Executive Officer for Ghana Library Authority, Hayford Siaw who was also present at the ceremony said that there are plans to build more libraries in Ghana.
“With our plans to build more libraries, we are also not left behind in the digital world. We have developed our own app to expand readership. One can download books for free from Ghana library app on play store,”
Karpowership and Electricity Company of Ghana signed a 450 MW PPA in 2015. “Power of Friendship for Ghana” is Karpowership’s first project in Africa and a significant step towards meeting the electricity demand of Ghana’s population and industry.
Karpowership will supply electricity to Ghana for 20 years.
