Endeavor-led consortium to build $552M Ghana power station

A consortium led by Africa-focused power producer Endeavor Energy began building a $552 million, 200-megawatt power plant in Ghana on Wednesday, it said in a statement.

Despite recent improvements, Ghana is struggling to keep up with growing power demands and is hit by regular blackouts that have been a drag on economic growth.

The plant being built in Aboadze, near the western city of Takoradi, will be a combined cycle, dual-fuel power facility. It is due to come online in April 2019, the consortium, Amandi Energy, said in a statement.

The consortium also includes London-based Aldwych International and other investors.
