Construction works at Ghana’s biggest power Bulk Supply Point (BSP) at Pokuase in Ga West have commenced.
The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, recently turned the sod at an event that marked the start of construction at a project that will change the future of energy supply in the country.
President Akufo-Addo made mention that the project is a major milestone in the country’s quest to develop a robust, resilient and reliable electricity supply system that is comparable to top quality networks around the world.
According to Akufo-Addo the development fell in line with government’s objectives of ensuring reliable supply of power to the industry.
“It is the expectation of government that consumers at all levels would benefit from improved availability, good quality and reliability of supply within the areas that the project would serve and to diversify our economy and help realise our vision of moving Ghana to a situation beyond aid, ” the President added.
It is hoped that BSP after completion will improve the quality of power supplied to the northern parts of Accra, the capital of Ghana.
The construction works around the project will be handled by a Spanish company Messrs Elecnor at a cost of about USD33.5-million.
