The GP Tarkwa Plant
Simple Cycle Power Plant
Genser Energy Ghana Limited signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with GoldFields Ghana Limited for the delivery of up to 40.0MW of power for their Tarkwa gold mine in Ghana. Accordingly, Genser has installed Gas Turbine Power Plant to provide consistent and reliable power for the Tarkwa mine’s operations.
