Ghana’s second emergency power barge is expected to berth on the shores of Ghana by the end of September 2016.
This follows the government of Ghana agreement with Turkish Power Producer to deliver 450 megawatts of power to help stabilize the energy problems in the country.
The second powership which has an installed capacity of 240 MW is about 70 percent complete, the Executive Director, Business Development of Karpowership Company Limited, Zeynep Harezi, has disclosed.
Apart from issuing a guarantee for the powerships, GNPC will be the main fuel supplier for the generation of power.
The first of the two barges arrived in November 2015 and has to a large extent helped in stabilizing the supply of electricity in the country.
