Group Five wins Ghana Power project contract
South African firm Group Five has won a contract to design and construct a 350-Mw gas and oil-fired power plant in Ghana. A Group Five spokesman said the Kpone Independent Power Project contract will run for three years.
The notice to proceed with construction is expected once commercial and financial close has been reached.
General Electric and Siemens are among the technology giants to supply the generating equipment to be utilised at the Kpone Independent Power Project facility.
The US$ 374m Kpone municipality gas power plant will help Ghana generate low-cost, reliable and efficient thermal power. It is expected that the plant will help deregulate Ghana’s electricity sector.
Group Five has operated in Ghana for over 15 years.
