  1. 4 MW expansion of Ghana's Bui hydropower project nears completion

    A 4 MW expansion of Ghana's Bui hydroelectric plant is nearing completion, according to contractor Sinohydro Corp. Ltd. of China. The new small powerhouse is intended to offset costs incurred by the Bui Power Authority for station services, and for use by BPA and Sinohydro's offices located at the site. The 400-MW Bui project , located on the Black Volta River, is the largest in Ghana behind the 1,020-MW Akosombo . Authorities said Bui has only been operating at between 80 and 220 MW, however, due to lower water levels in its reservoir. HydroWorld.com reported that main portion of the US$800 million plant was commissioned by Ghanaian president John Mahama in December 2013. Funding for the project was provided by the governments of Ghana and China . For more news from Africa,  visit here .
