A new power plant, Kpone Independent Power Plant (KIPP) in Tema, Ghana, will be independently owned by the Cenpower Generation Company (Cenpower) to provide safe, secure and reliable electricity supply to Ghana. It will consist of a multi-shaft combined cycle configuration comprising two gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators, and a single steam turbine, and will have a nominal installed capacity of approximately 350 MW. The plant will be designed to be fuelled by any one of three fuel sources, that is, natural gas, distillate fuel or light crude oil. Energas’ scope was to provide temperature and pressure controlled gas to the power plant. One of the challenges the company experienced was to fit the entire fuel gas station into a tight area and to design the station in such a manner that site installation can proceed as smooth as possible. Dimensions had to be tightly controlled, as skids made in South Africa and Germany had to fit precisely after installation.
