Karpowership leaves Tema for Sekondi-Takoradi

470MW Karadeniz Powership Osman Khan, has departed for the Sekondi Naval Base, after being stationed in the Tema Fishing Harbour for four years.

The 470 MW Electricity-generating barge replaced a 225 megawatts barge since 2015 operating in Tema to provide 450MW capacity to the national grid.

To ensure Karpowership reaches its maximum capacity, the government is at a final preparation stage to relocate the plant to Aboadze, near Takoradi.

This is in line with the government’s plans to ensure full utilization of gas resources from the Western enclave of the country.

It is also to ensure constant gas supply to the facility to enable it to produce uninterrupted power.

The relocation is expected to save the government millions of dollars annually.
