This is to help government address the power situation in the country. Indeed, as part of its efforts to stabilize power crisis, government had installed a 225 mega watts power barge that was constructed by the Turkish firm Karpower.


Even though there is the belief that Ghana’s power situation has stabilized, government plans to prop up power generated from the facility with a bigger barge hence the Power Purchase Agreement was signed between the state power distributor, ECG and Karpowership Ghana Company Ltd for the supply of two barges.

by this agreement, the two barges are generating a total of 450 megawatts each to directly feed into Ghana’s electrical grid for the next 10 years.

The first barge however, landed on the shores of Ghana last September and the second expected in September this year.

Meanwhile, a  new arrangement has scheduled the new barge to alone,  produced the needed 450 mega watts of power signed on that agreement, which will be sent back to Turkey upon the arrival of the new consolidated power barge.
