Occupants of Kasoa and its environs to encounter 15-day ‘dumsor’
The specialized regulator at the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA), Mr William Amuna, has declared that occupants living in Kasoa and its environs will encounter 15 days of burden shedding and blackouts.
The transitory burden shedding exercise, which is booked to occur from 27 May 2021, shapes some portion of arranged exercises to permit experts to coordinate another force substation into the public network.
Mr Amuna noticed that work on the new force substation is required to require 12 days.
Notwithstanding, about three additional days were added to screen and fix any hitches that may emerge.
He was important for the pastor’s site visit along with authorities from GRIDCo, ECG and Millennium Development Authority (MiDA).
The Kasoa BSP is a 435 MW limit Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) substation, the second biggest of its sort in the country.
It is being built to address low voltage and regular blackout challenges brought about by expanding homegrown and modern interest in Kasoa and its environs, including Senya Bereku, Bawjiase and Nyanyanu.
At the point when finished, the US$50 million BSP project, which is being financed by MiDA under the Ghana Power Compact program is required to profit 241, 508 ECG clients by immeasurably improving GRIDCo’s force transmission frameworks.
