Head of Communications at the Ghana National Gas Company, Alfred Ogbamey has told Pulse Business that the ensuing challenges in power supply in parts of the country will be resolved on Sunday.

The Power Ministry issued a statement on Wednesday explaining the cause of the current intermittent power challenges.

According to the statement, the country’s thermal plants in the Aboadze thermal enclave have been deprived of enough gas supply to operate, owing to a faulty equipment on the country’s gas plant.

Alfred Ogbamey has, however, confirmed that an order has been placed for the replacement of the equipment, meaning that the gas plant should be fully-operational by Sunday.

“ Yes, the statement by the Power Ministry is true. “We have had a challenge with the knock centre of the plant. This a key component that is used for determining and measuring the kind of gas received and transported.

Unfortunately, our local supplies have run out, so we have no option but to order it. We believe by Sunday the problem would have been fixed”, Alfred Ogbamey said.

The Aboadze thermal plants requires a daily supply of 60mmscf of gas, but are currently getting 24 mmscf.
