Pokuase Bulk Supply Point Substation to be inaugurated by President Akufo-Addo today

President Akufo-Addo will inaugurate the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point Substation on Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

This substation has formally been handed over to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and the Ghana Grid Company (GRDICo) by the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA).

On April 30, 2019, Honorable Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, Chief of Staff at the Office of the President, acting on behalf of the President of the Republic of Ghana, broke the ground for the construction of the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point (BSP) Substation.

She was supported by the US Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan, Anthony Welcher, former MCC Vice-President for Compact Operations and Professor Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu, Chairperson of the MiDA Board, at a colorful Ceremony organized by MiDA.

The Pokuase BSP, with a total capacity of 580MVA, is the largest BSP in Ghana. It is also the fifth BSP in Accra. Constructed under the existing 330kV Aboadze-Volta-Lomé.

Transmission line, the BSP is the first 330KV BSP in the capital and the most technologically advanced substation
in Ghana.

Elecnor S.A., a Spanish Company with global presence won the design-build contract to construct the substation
in February 2019.

By May 31, 2021, the company had completed and energized the Substation, despite the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
