Our operations not affected by Coup attempt in Turkey – Karpower

karpower1Turkish Company, Karpower Ghana Limited is assuring Ghanaian electricity consumers, the Coup attempt in Turkey would not in any way affect its power supply operations in Ghana, at least for now.

It follows the short-lived coup attempt by some individuals in the Turkish Armed Forces.

The Turkish government has however subsequently taken full control, detained all those responsible and begun judicial processes against the plotters.

There were fears the development could adversely impact on Karpower’s operations in Ghana and possibly worsen the country’s power situation. But the company has allayed such fears in an official release copied to JOY BUSINESS.

“All our international and local personnel are safe and all our operations inside and outside of Turkey and construction works in our shipyards continue without any interruptions or delays. Thus the 450mw Powership expected in Ghana this year will be delivered as planned,” the statement noted.

Karpower began operations in Ghana as a power supplier in December 2015. The Karadeniz Powership Ayşegül Sultan, with an installed capacity of 235MW, has since been producing 210 MW of uninterrupted electrical energy on average.

The second power barge expected to produce up to 450 MW is due to arrive in Ghana by September, 2016.
