Addressing the Government Assurance Committee in Parliament on Wednesday, Dr. Donkor said "Yes, indeed I made a promise that load shedding will end by the end of this year. Fortunately for us, we are still not at the end of the year.

"But Mr chairman in terms of all the chemical things, you will plan, you will put in place measures to ensure delivery, but normally in project management, you will have some allowance to make room for slippage. And although take away two weeks, technically by the end of the year load shedding should be over."

Dr. Donkor added that "if the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah which supplies gas to Atuabo Gas processing plant; should it trip, it will mean we will lose about 630 megawatts of power in the Aboadze corridor...The good thing is that whenever  it trips it doesn't take a week to bring it back to production."

Meanwhile, Dr. Donkor indicated that the controversial AMERI plant deal is the cheapest the country has ever had.

“I must state on record that AMERI is the cheapest plant we have in the country. It is cheaper than all the other plants in the country. In terms of thermal plants, it is the cheapest and offers the best in terms of tariff charges,” he stated.
