Ghana’s power generation company, Volta River Authority (VRA) is in the process of constructing 150MW wind power as part of its renewable energy drive.
The wind power project which is to be located in the Keta and Ada Municipalities respectively is expected to be part of VRA’s medium term plan. Chief Executive Officer of Volta River Authority [VRA], Ing Emmanuel Antwi Darkwa disclosed this during the just ended 5th Ghana Renewable Energy Fair and Natural Energy Symposium in Accra, capital of Ghana.
“We also look forward to developing Ghana’s first wind power project. It is our anticipation that, we would successfully complete the 150MW wind power project, to be located in the Keta and Ada Municipalities in the short to medium term. We also intend next year to develop a pilot floating solar project on the Kpong Hydroelectric Dam Headpond at Akuse to test the feasibility and adequacy of the operation of this technology in Ghana,” he said.
