The residents say the smoke coming from the powership has caused havoc to wild life and humans in the past 6 or so months the ship has operated from the spot.
They have therefore threatened to stage a demonstration against management of the power ship if nothing is done to stop the pollution.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East Constituency, Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover confirmed the problem to the Daily Guide stating that the Karpowership is causing a lot of destruction to the fauna, flora and lives of people in his constituency, adding that people are unable to go to the beach anymore.
“The fumes, the smoke that is coming out from the power generation comes straight to our surroundings and places of relaxation making it difficult for people to relax."
The Karpowership was brought in November 2016 to augment the country’s supply in the face of the country’s energy crisis.
It produces 210 MW of uninterrupted electrical energy running on low sulphur heavy fuel oil.
