NEK starts another new wind project development in Ghana
Apart from the ongoing wind energy developments which NEK is already undertaking at 5 different locations in Ghana, the company has now started another greenfield wind project development in that country. The project will be developed on a large and open area in the Ada-East District of the Greater Accra Region with a foreseen installed power of around 200 MW. The project is called Togbloku Wind Farm.
On this specific land, NEK already carried out first wind measurements back in 1999 / 2000 on 10 and 40 m met masts. Therefore, the wind conditions on site are known and encouraging: It is calculated that the 200 MW wind farm will generate around 550,000 MWh of clean, reliable and cheap electricity every year. Thereby, between 40 and 50 wind turbines of the 4-5 MW class shall be employed.
The required land lease agreements have been recently completed, so that NEK will now start with all required development tasks.
