Load shedding to ease after a month – MoE



The ongoing load shedding in Ghana will be over or ease in a month’s time, the deputy Energy Minister Benjamin Dagadu has assured.

According to the minister, the coming on stream of the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant will help augment power supply in the young oil-producing country.

He said the Plant will be commissioned in a month’s time after which it will transmit gas to the Aboadze Thermal Plant in the Western region to produce power to the rest of the country.

“I can confirm that,” Dagadu told Accra-based Citi FM when asked if the full flow of gas at Atuabo will improve the load shedding.

Most parts of Ghana are going through unplanned load shedding due to low water level at the Akosombo Dam.

On Monday, November 10, the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant recorded the first flow of gas in a test run.
