Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The Project involves the construction and operation of two power plants in Tema, Ghana with a capacity of up to a 424 MW. The Project, which will be located on two Brownfield sites, will be developed in stages. Development of the first site will include the construction of five open cycle combustion turbines, which will generate 145 MW followed by the installation of once-through steam generators on each turbine, which will add another 57 MW of power. The second stage development will be on a separate, but nearby site and will consist of about 222 MW of additional power to be generated by four combustion turbines with Heat Recovery Steam Generators. It is anticipated that all facilities will operate initially on Liquid Petroleum Gas with diesel as a backup fuel in emergencies and when LPG is unavailable. Within 5 years of the commencement of Phase 2 operations, it is anticipated that the plant will
switch to Natural Gas, should it be made available by the Government of Ghana.
