Ghana’s power crisis is likely to improve in the coming days as the Volta River Authority (VRA) at the weekend received a 250-megawatt (MW) plant from Africa and Middle East Resource Investment (AMERI) based in Dubai.
The AMERI plant, made up of 10 power units, will be installed and hooked to gas from the Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) as its fuel.
The 10 power units, each with a capacity of 25MW, will be moved to the Aboadze Thermal Power Enclave.
Meanwhile, the Karpower ship from Turkey with 225MW has set sail and is due in the country next month.
The AMERI plants are different from the two 225MW Karpower ships.
The ships, which are un-motorised power ships, known as power barges, are power plants installed on a deck barge and technically referred to as “floating power plants”.
