PHOTOS: The Power barge finally HERE – SEE PHOTOS


The Tema Harbour has welcomed the first of many power barges promised the people of Ghana by the government to work towards a lasting solution to the current energy crisis.

The barge, which sailed in from Turkey, docked afternoon, locals who have managed to take amateur images of the facility, say.

The barge will at least add 225 megawatts to the current energy stock.

The emergency power plant from Turkey has delayed more than necessary after the April, September and October 2015 deadline were not met.

The first electron from the powership will help in ending the country’s erratic power supply (“Dumsor”) of three years and counting.

The agreement with Karpowership is expected to save the country between 100 to 120 million dollars annually, officials say.
