“Unlike the Pokuase BSP I visited a week ago, the Kasoa BSP is a Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) harnessing 435MVA. Its construction will address the low voltage and frequent power outage challenges caused by the increasing domestic and industrial demand in Kasoa and its environs including Senya Bereku, Bawjiase and Nyanyanu.

“Upon completion, the programme will benefit 241,508 ECG customers by vastly improving GRIDCO’s power transmission system. At the inspection site, it was pleasant to note the considerable number of Ghanaian engineers who have been employed to work on the ongoing project; a sign that our vision for local participation is being upheld as promise by H.E.
