The long-awaited 225 Megawatts capacity power barge which set sail from Turkey has finally reached the shores of Ghana in the Western Region and currently headed for Tema as reports do indicate it is expected to arrive at Winneba at 6pm local time and thus dock at the Tema port on Saturday afternoon as already expected.
Ghana’s Western Naval Command with the vessel GNS Bilika met the barge which entered the Ghanaian waters at 1:00am on Friday thus issuing out an escort and security move for the barge to Winneba in the Central Region, where the Eastern Naval Command will then take over and escort it to its final destination at the Tema port.
When completed the power plant will generate additional 250 MW into the National Interconnected Transmission System (NITS).
Ghana’s erratic power supply is feared to have caused the nation a great deal of loss considering the huge losses accrued by several businesses and the subsequent layoffs in that regard.
