Update On Load Shedding

The current increase in the quantum of load shedding in the country has come about as a result of a shutdown of Ghana National Gas Company Ltd (Ghana gas) at Atoabo to enable the African Middle East Investment (AMERI) Power plant to be connected onto the gas supply system of Ghana Gas.

The AMERI Plant at Aboadze currently being installed is expected to generate additional 250 MW into the National Interconnected Transmission System (NITS) when fully commissioned.

Engineers of both the Ghana National Gas Company Ltd (Ghana Gas) and AMERI are working round the clock to complete the connection of the gas line and to ameliorate the current further decline in power supply in the country.

The public is kindly requested to bear with the situation as the gas line connection is expected to be completed soon.
