Generation of renewable energy in Ghana is expected to receive a major boost as German firm, Siemens, is setting up a 150 megawatt wind plant to augment power supply.

The firm hopes to liaise with a financial partner to site the project at Tema.

The Chief Executive Officer of Siemens Southern and Eastern Africa Sabine Dall’ Omo told Starr Business the project is part of the $100 million investment by her outfit in Ghana.

According to her, the project which will be the first of its kind in West Africa will help diversify Ghana’s energy provision and also translate into job creation.

“We are currently waiting for the financial arrangement, the study and everything is ready and as soon as we get a bankable structure together then the project can fly,” she said.

Siemens is currently engaged in the supply of electrical equipment for the 350 MW Cenpower Project at Tema and supply of compressors at the ENI Project in the Western region.
