While our engineering company started first wind measurements in the region of Greater Accra back in 1998, we initiated the development of the Madavunu Wind Farm in 2016.
The location of the Madavunu Wind Farm is in the coastal region of Ghana about 70 - 80 km east of Accra, in the District of Ada West. It is located north of the main road leading from Tema eastwards towards the Volta Region. It covers an overall area of approximately 30 km².
The landscape is predominantly flat with some small hills. The natural vegetation consists mostly of grasses and small bushes. The land is agriculturally dominated and is used for small scale farming and pasture. Some small watercourses, which fall dry during periods with little precipitation, lead through the area. The planned turbines are situated on agricultural and wasteland owned by several families and communities of the area.
The Madavunu Wind Farm will, once completely commissioned, have a capacity of up to 200 MW and will supply around 500,000 MWh per year of clean, affordable and reliable electrical energy.
