This means that the Sierra Leone and its people are set to start enjoying more light and brightness. This was according to a joint statement issued past Tuesday by the Ministry of Energy and Karpowership, a member of the Istanbul-based Karadeniz Energy Group.

Karpowership had announced in December last year that the Karadeniz Powership Dogan Bey arrived in Sierra Leone, where it will start operating from its offshore location directly into the national grid sub-station.

The plant which has 126 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity will meet 33 percent of the country’s electricity needs for five years, under the Utility Grid Infrastructure and Electricity Supply Agreement with Sierra Leone’s Electricity Distribution and Supply Authority, the Ministry of Energy, and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development.

“The project is important for the stability of the country’s national grid as the country’s energy demand grows daily,” said Minister of Energy Ambassador Henry Olufumi Macauley.

He added: Karpowership and its ability to deploy fast-track utility-sized power-ships on a turnkey basis undoubtedly address the short term and immediate requirements with economical and flexible solutions for countries with energy needs.”
