    • Technical and financial assessment of two newly-built power plants in Ghana > Ghana Energy Development and Access Project, Ministry of Energy In the recent past, Ghana, which used to enjoy a relatively stable supply of power mainly from hydro-electric power plants, has faced some challenges as the demand for the supply of power gas continued to grow. The Government initiated a number of supplementary power generation projects including the Kpone Thermal Power Project (KTPP) and the Tema Thermal 2 Power Project (TT2PP) to address the occasional power crises.  Two Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contracts were therefore signed to build these two power plants. These two projects were due for completion in 2009. However, three years down the line, work on the completion and commissioning of the KPTT has stalled while work towards the completion of the TT2PP has virtually been completed. The aim of this assignment is: 1. To assess the status of completion of the KTPP and TT2PP projects; and 2. To make recommendations towards ensuring the completion of the projects and the subsequent operation of the plants in a cost-effective manner.
