Tema power plants, Ghana

Two power plants at Tema have been developed to provide much-needed power to Ghana’s national grid.

Close

Opportunity

As Ghana's economy grows, the need for electrical power has increased, driving demand for new power stations.

Solution

As design engineer for the Tema thermal 1 power plant, Mott MacDonald was responsible for process, civil, mechanical, electrical, control, and instrumentation design for a single 126-megawatt open-cycle gas turbine.

Following construction in 2008, we were appointed as designer for a second identical but independent power plant next to the first.

Outcome

In addition to our design work, we provided technical consulting during procurement, and site supervision throughout construction.

After both plants entered operation, we undertook a technical study for the conversion of the two open-cycle power plants to a single combined-cycle plant.
