Energy Minister Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh will this morning, Tuesday, 27 April 2021 visit the site of the ongoing project for the construction of a Bulk Supply Point (BSP) at Kasoa, together with officials from GRIDCo, ECG and Millennium Development Authority (MiDA).
The visit is to familiarize himself with the progress of the work.
The Kasoa BSP is a 435 MWA Capacity Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) substation, the second largest of its kind in the country.
It is being constructed to address low voltage and frequent power outage challenges caused by increasing domestic and industrial demand in Kasoa and its environs, including Senya Bereku, Bawjiase and Nyanyanu.
When completed, US$50m BSP project, which is being funded by MiDA under the Ghana Power Compact programme is expected to benefit 241, 508 ECG customers by vastly improving GRIDCo’s power transmission systems.
