10 Significant Projects That Were Completed In Africa In 2014

7. Natural Gas plant, Ghana

With a power deficit of over 400 megawatts the Ghanaian capital Accra struggles to provide continuous sustainable energy to its citizens. Power cuts are commonplace and the main energy company of Ghana has even threatened to inflict 24-hour power cuts.

A natural gas project in the coastal town of Atuabo has been built to improve this situation and secure foreign investment in the country’s capital. Ghana, West Africa’s second largest economy, has been stricken by financial woes – its currency depreciating against the dollar by more than half creating serious budget imbalances. The gas plant not only will provide the 480 – 550 megawatts of extra power, but also reduces the expensive electricity imports from abroad.
