Private firm builds power substation for Estate in Ghana


Ghana’s private power firm, Enclave Power Company, a subsidiary of LMI Holdings, has developed and build a 330KVA Dawa substation in Dawa Industrial City.

The substation was built with the use of local Ghanaian expertise in the areas of design, civil works, project supervision at a cost of US$30 million.

The substation would serve the electric power requirements of the Dawa Industrial City (DIC), an industrial and business park located on a 2,000-acre stretch of land.

The estate has a future expansion plan for a potential 20,000-acre real estate development, all of which are located on the Accra- Aflao highway.

Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu, said the project is a clear manifestation of a private sector led agenda for industrialization in line with government’s One District One Factory initiative.

The project, he noted, is a demonstration of the current government policy of using the private sector as an engine of growth.
