POWER SUPPLY FROM ABOADZE POWER ENCLAVE WILL NOT BE AFFECTED BY FPSO SHUTDOWN

Following the shutdown of the Jubilee FPSO on February 1, 2018 for planned maintenance, the Volta River Authority (VRA) has put in place contingency plans to avert the supply deficit that would have occurred at the western power enclave, during the period.

  1. We will operate up to two turbines on Light Crude Oil (LCO) in combined cycle mode to generate up to 300MW from Aboadze, to support the system.
  2. In addition, VRA will receive on demand, up to 200MW of power from La Cote d’Ivoire to complement generation.

All other VRA facilities: hydro, thermal and solar, are available and operating at optimum capacity. END.
