General Electric Co., Endeavor Energy Resources LP and Sage Petroleum Ltd. won approval from Ghanaian lawmakers for the construction of the worldâ€™s largest liquefied petroleum gas fired power plant and a 20-year purchase agreement with the nationâ€™s electricity distribution utility.
The Early Power consortium will develop the 400 megawatt Bridge Power venture in two phases to start producing 144 megawatt for the Electricity Corporation of Ghana by the middle of next year, Endeavor said in an e-mailed statement on Tuesday. The plant will be built in the port city of Tema, about 26 kilometers (16 miles) east of the capital, Accra, Endeavor said.
â€śWhen completed, it will be the largest LPG gas fired power plant in the world,â€ť Endeavor said. The plant will be â€ścapable of being fueled by natural gas and dieselâ€ť as well.
