Bridge Power Fast-deployment Project
Bridge Power is the first of its kind in Africa, a fast-deployment, dual-fueled LPG and natural gas power project located in Ghana consisting of about 424 MW of combined cycle power generation technology. Bridge Power’s first stage is expected to fully financed in 2018 and projected to deliver first power in 2020.
Bridge Power will be built in two stages:
- Stage 1: 202 MW power block consisting of 5 GE TM2500+ gas turbines and 1 purpose-built GE steam turbine in CCGT configuration
- Stage 2: 222 MW power block consisting of 4 GE LM6000 gas turbines and 1 purpose-built GE steam turbine in CCGT configuration
Initially to be fueled by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), Bridge will be able to switch to natural gas once it becomes available. To support the LPG, LPG import, transport, and storage infrastructure will be developed, which can be for other markets in Ghana once Bridge switches to natural gas.
Bridge Power is in late-stage development; it has (1) received Parliamentary approval of the Power Purchase Agreement and PURC approval of its power tariff, (2) secured its site and fuel supply, (3) obtained a locally-approved Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (international approval pending), (4) entered into an EPC contract with Metka, a globally reputable firm, and (5) initiated some pre-NTP construction of the LPG infrastructure.
Endeavor Energy is lead developer and majority shareholder of the Bridge Project. We will be responsible for O&M and commercial management of the plant as well as provide construction management and oversight of the EPC contractor.
Bridge Power is a transformational power project for Ghana, as it will rapidly add much needed generation capacity similar to the pace of an emergency power project, but at a cost to Ghana similar to baseload power generation. The Project will also diversify Ghana’s current fuel mix through secure, lower-cost LPG supply.
