  • The setting up and laying of pipelines to power the relocated Karpowership from Tema to the Sekondi Naval Base is about 85 percent complete.

    Ghana Gas Company Limited will, as a result, push its first gas from Atuabo Gas Processing Plant to the power ship in October this year.

    Ernest Owusu Bempah, Head of Communication of Ghana Gas, made this known when officials of the company visited the relocated Karpowership at the Sekondi Naval Base to ascertain the progress of work.

    The government took a decision to move the 470 megawatts Karpowership to Sekondi Naval Base to enable operations to draw natural gas from Atuabo Ghana Gas plant to power the powership.

    Mr. Bempah expressed joy about the work done so far and was hopeful that all things being equal, the powership will become operational come October.

    He pointed out that the eight-kilometer onshore and the 1.3 km offshore pipelines linking the Karpowership, the tie-in point, had all been successfully laid and it was left with the metering gauge and other technical lines to be fixed.

    He said Ghana Gas has more than 350mcsf gas and would be able to meet the demands of the powership.
