Our engineering company started first wind measurements in the region of Greater Accra back in 1998. Based on the positive results of this campaign, we initiated the development of the Madavunu Wind Farm in 2016.
The location of the Madavunu wind park project is in the coastal region of Ghana about 70 - 80 km east of Accra in the District of Ada West. It is located north of the main road leading from Tema eastwards towards the Volta Region. It covers an extensive area of approximately 12'000 acres between the villages of Sege in the west and Caesarkope in the east.
The area can be characterized as agriculturally dominated and is mainly used for small scale farming or pasture. Small bushes are scattered throughout the otherwise flat and featureless grassland. Some small hills near the main road reach an altitude of up to 50 m.
The District Assembly expressed “no objection” towards the implementation of the wind park. Besides, the Madavunu Wind Farm is in the process of conducting the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment, in order to apply for the Environmental Permit of the Ghana Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Madavunu Wind Farm will, once completely commissioned, have a capacity of up to 200 MW and will supply around 520,000 MWh of clean, affordable and reliable electrical energy per year, which is produced locally, without need of any fuel or gas.
