Mitsui and KEPCO E&C to Expand Takoradi T2 Power Plant in Ghana

Tokyo, July 17, 2012 (JCN) - Mitsui & Co. and KEPCO Engineering & Construction Company, Inc. (KEPCO E&C) have contracted to the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC Contract) of the expansion of the Takoradi T2 power plant in Ghana with Takoradi International Company (TICO).

The EPC contract was signed on Dec. 28, 2011, and after receiving final approval from the Ghanaian Parliament on Jun. 22, 2012, it has been effective since Jul. 12, 2012.

This project is to add a steam turbine (120MW), two heat recoverysteam generators (HRSGs) and a sea water direct cooling system to the existing two gas turbines (110MW each) of Takoradi T2 power plant, which have been operated by TICO.

With the addition, the existing T2 simple cycle power plant will be converted to combined cycle, and its gross capacity will be expanded to 340MW. The total value of the contract is approximately US$260 million and the construction work will last for about 28.5 months to be completed in November of 2014.

This EPC Contract is the first collaboration between Mitsui and KEPCO E&C. Through this opportunity, the both companies will continue to focus on developing more power generation projects in Ghana and Africa.
