Karpowership now in Sekondi

The 470 megawatts Krandeniz Powership Osman Khan on Thursday arrived at the anchorage of the Home Port of the Western Naval Command at Sekondi in the Western Region.

The powership propelled itself from Tema to the Western Region.

The powership was moored to its jetty within the navel command where it will be connected to 10 kilometer marine and onshore gas pipeline from the metering station of the Ghana National Gas Company.

After it settles, the powership will continue to use heavy fuel oil (HFO) until in the middle of November 2019 when it will be connected to natural gas.

It will require 90 million standard cubic feet of gas daily (MMSCFD).

Construction work on the jetty at Sekondi started in August last year.

It also saw the construction and the expansion and reenforcement of the breakwater from 2 meters to 4 meters.
