The 250 Mega Watt Karrpower ship has been connected to the National Grid. This is according to reports from the Ghana Grid Company- GRIDCO carried by Accra-based radio station, Citi FM, Monday.

GRIDCO revealed that the power barge was connected  to the national grid a few days ago. According to Chief Executive Officer of GRIDCO, the barge is ready to contribute power to the grid.

Engineer  William Amunu also revealed that all required tests have been carried out and all arrangements set for the commencement of production.

GRIDCO said, last week that the transmission lines from the power ship to GRIDCO’s smelta 2 substation was completed, awaiting connection to the power barge.

Therefore, once the some minor mechanic work currently underway is completed, Ghanaians will start enjoying power from the ship.

GRIDCo during the arrival of the barge on November 28 promised to connect the plant to the national grid within a week.

“we are done with the connections; we actually are done with the termination of the barge about three days ago.

We have gone through all the relay settings, the protection, testing and everything. As we indicated last week, we said within one week we should give you a deal, we are very ready now.”

“There are other things being done on the barge, the generators and other things…the manufacturers are also doing the final checks on the generators, once they are okay we will be ready to power the line and supply power to the grid,” he added.

The power barge contracted from Turkey is part of the medium term measures adopted by government to mitigate the effects of the power crisis.
