As part of the current government?s promise to increase installed power generation capacity from 2,443 in 2012 to 5,000 megawatts by 2016, the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum has in conjunction with the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC), urged US energy firm Symbion Power to accelerate its 450 megawatt gas to electricity project.

The project is to ensure that at least the first 100 megawatts of power is available in early 2015 to help stem the recurring power shortfalls in the country.

Energy Minister Emmanuel Armah Kofi-Buah made the call to Paul Hinks, Chief Executive Officer of Symbion Power when the two held a meeting.

The Minister assured Symbion Power of government?s full support to help put the new power plant on a faster track.

Government, Mr. Buah indicated, will allocate land for the project to ensure that gas will be available for Symbion in time for the commissioning.
