According to Harith General Partners, a fund manager for infrastructure developement accross the African continent:

 

"The Amandi Project will be crucial in helping to meet Ghana’s growing power needs. Once constructed, the plant will be the most efficient power plant in the country and will produce more than 1,600 gigawatt hours per year. This will energise up to one million Ghanaian households. Amandi Energy will sell power to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) under a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement. It will be initially fuelled by light crude oil, with future plans to switch to indigenous gas acquired from Ghana’s offshore Sankofa natural gas field.

 

The Amandi Project is expected to be fully constructed within 27 months and is scheduled to operate in April 2019.

 

The plant’s construction will create 400 jobs, most of which will be filled by Ghanaians, with a further 100 full-time jobs emerging from the plant’s operations."

"When it’s operational, Amandi will help alleviate Ghana’s power challenges, where an insufficient cost-effective supply of energy has resulted in regular power outages."
