Ghana: GRIDCo outlines US$237m transmission line projects

Ghana’s power transmission company, GRIDCo, has outlined several projects to upgrade its transmission line to improve power transmission and reliability.

Among three critical projects GRIDCo intends to execute to improve the power transmission network are 161kV Aboadze-Cape Coast-Winneba-Mallam Transmission Line, 161kV Mallam-Pokuase Transmission Line and 161kV middle corridor transmission line (Akosombo-Tafo-Nkawkaw- Konongo-Kumasi).

These projects are expected to cost the state power transmitter some US$274 million

Besides these projects, GRIDCo would also undertake three major projects namely the Ghana-Germany Compact, an improvement of the southwestern infrastructure and the construction of a Backup Control Centre.

The Chief Executive Officer of GRIDCo, Ing Ebenezer Kofi Essienyi, disclosed this at a press briefing in Accra on Monday, June 6, 2022.

According to him, this forms part of efforts by the government to ensure a robust grid system to meet the increasing energy demands of businesses and households in selected parts of the country.

“Two main energy sector projects are programmed for commencement this year as part of a broader plan to transform the sector. The projects are the Ghana-Germany Compact and the Western Corridor Transmission Lines Upgrade,” he said.

However, outlining GRIDCo’s plan for the energy sector, Ing. Essienyi said the two programmed upgrades would help improve Ghana’s electricity grid capacity and also ensure that the country produces energy for local consumption and export.

He said the projects, when completed, would contribute to reducing the frequency and duration of power outages in parts of the country.
