VRA to rely on Ivorian power to avert ‘dumsor’

The Volta River Authority (VRA) is to import about 200 megawatts of power from neighbouring Cote d’Ivoire to augment local production and avert power rationing, otherwise known as ‘dumsor’, following shutdown of the Jubilee FPSO on February 1, 2018 for planned maintenance.

The Jubilee Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO) produces oil and gas offshore Cape Three Points in the Western Region. The gas is then piped on-shore to the Ghana Gas Company’s gas processing plant at Atuabo.

The commodity is then processed and supplied to thermal plants sited at the Aboadze Power Enclave for thermal power production.

Shutdown of the FPSO is therefore expected to affect power supply from the Western Enclave, a situation the VRA believes will be averted with additional imports from La Cote d’Ivoire and running power turbines at Aboadze on Light Crude Oil (LCO).
