I joined Genser Energy on 9th April 2009 as a Shift Charge Engineer and was privileged to be part of the team that constructed the 36MW Gas Turbine, that was commissioned and run for 2 years before handing over to Bogoso Gold Mines (BGL).
I was selected to travel to Dubai,UAE with a six member team to train and work on a Steam Turbine to be used at Chirano site. Upon my return from the UAE, I was asked to lead the Electrical team to carry out all electrical installation work at Chirano Camp and also to assist the Project team to construct the Integrated Gasification Combine Cycle (IGCC) as Assistant Project Electrical Engineer.
Over the past 9 years at Genser, I have been exposed to a whole new world in electrical engineering. I can also emphatically, the opportunity to work with Genser Energy has also broaden my scope of opportunities in the near future.
Shift Charge Engineer
I have had the pleasure of working with Genser Energy since December 2010. Previously known as Genser Power, the name change reflects the company’s departure from electrical power focus only, to diversification of both the supply and nature of energy production. While in the university without knowing what the professional world expects from Engineers, I had the chance of having my internship at Genser, where my little mind was shaped. I first started as a Mechanical Engineer Intern, was employed as an Assistant Project Engineer and promoted to Project Engineer. Over the years, I have progressed through the designations of Operations Engineer, Shift Charge Engineer and currently the Operations Superintendent for GP Damang.
Through projects such as GP Unilever, GP Chirano and GP Damang/Tarkwa, I developed my skills and gained much knowledge and experience. Typical examples include mechanical designs (e.g. P&ID, PFD, WPS), standard design codes application (e.g. ASME b31.1, api2510.2001), hazardous area classification, power plant operation, just to mention a few. I must also emphasize on the professionalism of the working crew and how they impacted my way of thinking. By attending high profile meetings, I have become more confident with my public speaking skills.
I have experienced many great moments in Genser, most recent been the Powergen International Conference in the USA in December 2017, where I got in touch with wide range of professionals in the power industry. My most memorable experience at Genser which always comes to mind was my ability to supervise the construction of the GP Damang Plant which has been in smooth operation since December 2016. This was possible because Genser trained me, believed in me and gave me the opportunity. As prevalent as it is in life, I have experienced tough moments at Genser but the thrilling moments far outshine the former.
