Wind project development in Ghana further extended

After the government of Ghana having decided quite some time ago to introduce a legally defined feed-in tariff for renewable energies, the tariff negotiations with the regulatory authority PURC are practically completed. It is expected that in the next weeks a feed-in tariff for wind generated electricity will be published and laid down in Ghana, which will provide much more planning reliability for corresponding project developments.

In this background we have extended our wind park development activities in the last few months: Next to our 50-MW-project in Prampram, which we have been developing for some years, now also wind park projects further in the east at the sites Sege / Ningo as well as Dzita / Atiteti are being pushed on by us. The wind measurements conducted there have shown a wind potential, which makes the installation of wind parks at these sites interesting. Both these projects will have an installed electrical capacity of 40 – 60 MW depending on the type of turbine chosen.
