Rolls-Royce supplies 36 gas gensets for power plant in Ghana
Ghana suffers from a shortage of electric power and the Ghanaian Energy Commission has resolved to feed an extra 3,000 MW into the public grid by 2020. Major oil and gas fields have been under development since 2007 and since that time these two fuels have been the primary sources of energy within the country.
Andrea Nono, MTU South Africa, CEO, said: “Our gas-powered engines are particularly well-suited for distributed power plants such as those in Ghana. They offer rapid solutions that can be implemented in a relatively short time and are thus capable of helping to stabilize public power supplies.”
MTU Onsite Energy and VPower recently announced a strategic agreement that strengthened their partnership in power generation markets across China and the rest of Asia. Rorce Au-Yeung, VPower Group, Co-CEO, said: “The project in Ghana shows that our success as partners is not limited to Asia. Our system design and integration capabilities and MTU Onsite Energy’s gensets are a perfect match and allow us to offer our customers a fast and sound solution for their power needs.”
