A 33KV feeder from Aflao to Keta has been built by the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to improve power delivery in the southwest of the Volta Region. In addition to stringing new lines, the power distribution firm erected poles. Some portion of the existing lines were also renovated, and put in transformers.

The acting Volta Regional General Manager, Ing. Buabin said his outfit aims at promoting the growth of the local economy by providing stable power supply to Keta.  As well as Kedzi, Adafienu, Adina, Agavedzi, Blekusu, Vodja and surrounding communities.

Remarks on the 33KV feeder project

He said, “The management chose to finish this project to make things easier for our customers. With the goal of providing high-quality, dependable, and safe energy services to promote the socioeconomic growth and development of Ghana.”

Buabin noted that they frequently faced power outages and low voltage. Because the under-listed settlements relied on the Sogakope Bulk supplies Point for their supplies. He also mentioned that the transmission lines also had a transformer operating at its maximum capacity.

He said, “Due to these problems, a unique line between the Aflao Bulk Supply Point and the Anloga Switching Station had to be built because there were occasionally low voltage levels in some regions. As a result of the initiative, the company can now deliver power to the keta enclave from either Sogakope or Aflao Bulk deliver Point. Which will improve system losses, supply dependability and stability, operating efficiency, and flexibility.”

According to Ing. Buabin, in addition to the 33KV feeder project, the company has also implemented a number of programs to improve service delivery and guarantee client happiness.

He said, “To boost the area’s access to power, we are constructing a switching station at Peki and Dzrakate. As well as a primary substation at Sokode, and an express line from Kpando to Hohoe.”
