NEK Umwelttechnik AG, a Swiss-based wind energy provider, together with its partners, has acquired land at Ayitepa in the Greater Accra Region to create a wind farm to generate 225 megawatts of electricity.

The Ningo/Prampram District Chief Executive, Alhajj Sa Rhack Nartey,said the wind farm would be located between Mangotsonya and Lekpongunor in the Ningo Traditional Area.

The stakeholders, including the chiefs and landowners of the area, therefore, held a meeting on Thursday to discuss the demarcation and survey of the various clan/family parcels of land, the demarcation of the boundaries of the entire project site and geotechnical survey within the project area.

Alhaji Nartey said the government was very much in support of the wind project because of its enormous benefits to the traditional area and the country as a whole.

“I wish to thank the Ningo Traditional Council for its efforts to make this project a reality,” Alhajj Nartey said.

He expressed gratitude to the various clans/families who had released lands for the project.

He appealed to all stakeholders to cooperate with each other and agree on matters that would help the project to materialise.
