The Deputy Power Minister, John Jinapor, is assuring consumers of an uninterrupted power supply as the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant finally shuts down for mandatory maintenance.
The exercise expected to last for at least a week is to among other things, enable engineers undertake a major repair and maintenance works on the Plant in line with insurance requirements.
There have since the announcement of the shutdown been concerns about possible power outages to the detriment of especially, businesses and individual users alike.
But speaking with JOY BUSINESS at a 3-day International Roadshow underway in Accra dubbed “POWER ELEC”, Mr. Jinapor said measures have been put in place to ensure reliable power supply.
President of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) James Asare Agyei wants government to take steps to reverse of the arrangement where industry is made to pay higher tariffs whereas residential users are subsidized.
The roadshow is organized by experts and specialists from Dubai, India, Turkey and Ghana in partnership with the AGI.
