The Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) says work on the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point (BSP) project is at a 61 per cent completion stage.
This comes after the arrival of six major transformers in Ghana, procured by the Authority for the ongoing BSP project, which will provide efficient power supply to over 350,000 residents, businesses, institutions and health facilities.
A statement from the Authority indicated that the project is scheduled to be handed over to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) at the end of the first quarter of 2021.
“Work on the Pokuase BSP project is currently 61 per cent complete, and it is scheduled to be handed over to ECG and GRIDCo at the end of the first quarter of 2021. The arrival of all the six transformers, together with other related equipment, marks a significant milestone in the construction of the first 330kV Bulk Supply Point in Accra, which will be the largest Substation in Ghana when completed,” it said.
MiDA said the transformers, which come in two sizes, 145 MVA and 39 MVA, and will also support the operations of GRIDCo and ECG, were shipped in two batches and arrived at the Tema Port on April 27 and on the May 4, 2020 respectively.
