LOCATION

Is a proposed 420MW combined cycle thermal power plant to be located at Prampram, 20km east of Accra. It is mainly a fishing community but gradually growing into an industrial hub in Ghana.

The 55-acre site is bordered on the south by the coast and undeveloped land with some small-scale salt winning activities. The site was selected because of its proximity to the Accra and Tema major load centres, ease of interconnection with the Ghana national grid for power evacuation, site access and water supply

PROJECTS BENEFITS

  • Reliable low-cost power
  • Job creation
  • Local sourcing of goods
  • Further foreign investment in Ghana

TECHNOLOGY

The technology comprises of a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) with an expected on-site capacity of about 420MW (ISO).  It will consist of two (2) GE Frame 9E Gas Turbines (GTs) with two (2) Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs) & a Steam Turbine Generator (STG). The engines are tested in Sub-Saharan Africa and worldwide with very good track record.

For the grid interconnection, there is an existing 330-kV transmission line in Pampram running by the Prampram site which could evacuate power generated onto the Ghana National Grid.

Fuel supply to the site will be either through the Right-of-Way (RoW) from VRA’s facility in Tema or RoW from Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) and through on-site storage tanks.

It will receive reliable, affordable & high spec of LNG (gas) from its sister gas company, corks gas, to be used for the operations of its GT’s
