Ghana would have an extra 230 megawatts of electric power added to the national electricity grid in the next two to three years when Sino Hydro Corporation of China builds four dams in the Central and Western regions.
This would mean there would be no power outages since there would be adequate supply of electricity, Mr Kwadwo Baah-Wiredu, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, said when he signed a US$920 million agreement between Ghana, represented by Pato Power Co. Limited and Sino Hydro Corporation of China. The site for the dams will be the Pra and Ankobra rivers in the Central and Western regions. The project would also see the construction of townships with schools and roads to help improve the economic situation of people in the project sites. Mr Ding Zhengguo, Executive Deputy Managing Director of Sino Hydro Corporation of China, said his company had over 50 years’ experience in hydro electric and water conservancy in China and abroad. Ghana is just coming out of a crippling energy crisis which badly affected industries and domestic users.
