Ghana: BPA commissions first mini-hydro plant
The Bui Power Authority (BPA) has completed work on Ghana’s first micro-hydropower plant. The 45kW Tsatsadu Generating Station in the Hohoe District, in the country’s south-eastern region of Volta, was developed under the Ministry of Energy’s renewable energy initiative. The run-of-river project, which could be expanded with the addition of another 45kW turbine, is expected to be the first in a series of small hydropower stations planned across the country by the ministry in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
