Fuel Supply and Logistics
Genser uses proven technologies to provide sustainable power solutions for its clients. Pursuant to this, Genser uses a wide range of fuel such as natural gas and natural gas liquids (propane and butane), liquified natural gas (LNG), crude and coal for the operation of its thermal power plants. To ensure the smooth operation of Genser’s power plants, Genser procures all fuel needed for the operation of its power plants directly from fuel terminals in the USA, Algeria Morocco and Equatorial Guinea.
The Fuel Vessel at the Takoradi Port offloads fuel (currently propane) directly into trucks. Four trucks are loading at time.
Natural gas liquids (mainly propane) is sourced from multiple terminals in USA, Algeria, Morocco and Equatorial Guinea and is transported via fuel vessels accross oceans to Ghana. The vessel transporting the fuel anchors at the Takoradi Port in the Western Region of Ghana, to allow the fuel to be offloaded into bulk road vehicles (BRVs).
From the Takoradi Port, the fuel is trucked to the GP Kojokrom Facility (for temporary storage) and the various Genser generation sites for power production.
On November 9, 2016, Genser Energy received its first cargo of 34,000MT of LPG from Adventus Fuels LLC, a US based hydrocarbon trading entity. The fuel was offloaded from the Adventus Fuels LPG vessel, Gaschem Jade via Ship to Ship (STS) and Ship to Truck (STT) transfers at the Takoradi Port.
